I recently started subscribing to Stanford dSchool’s Quarterly Co. subscription and just received by first exciting shipment. The dSchool’s mailings are meant to provide a new creative experience delivered to your door every quarter. The box aims to help you “a) see differently; b) act radically; and c) have some good old-fashioned fun.” This is a great way to get a peek into the dSchool’s process and access exclusive activities and materials straight from the school.
This quarter the experience is focused on “Sketching”, a key creative skill set and something I’ve had on my list to improve. The kit contained a couple notebooks (one meant to act as a guide with sketching lessons/prompts), pencils, a pen, a bullet shaped pencil sharpener and an elastic band to hold it all together. I’m really excited by the kit and eager to jump in and start putting my skills to the test
