When it comes to the design profession, there's a long and complicated history of "trendy" and "disruptive" design.But a new survey of more than 1,000 designers has found that a lot of the current focus on the latter is actually misguided, and the former is the wrong direction."It's easy to think about design as something that only needs to be used in the context of your brand," says Jason Luscomb...
The next web graphic design boot camp could be the best thing to happen to graphic design since Adobe Flash, says a new study by the New York Times.
The study, which looked at the number of applications submitted to the New Product Design Boot Camp program and how the number has changed over the past decade, found that the percentage of applications for graphic design from startups and startups-focused companies has increased from 30 percent in 2011 to 55 percent in 2015.
The percentage of applicants that were startups and founders grew from 19 percent in 2012 to 30 percent by 2015.
“The trends have been there for quite a while,” said Michael Bode, co-founder and chief executive officer of Graphic Design Fund, which runs the program.
“There is a very strong entrepreneurial spirit in this industry, and people have been looking for the next great thing to take the next leap.”
The New Product Designs Bootcamp, founded in 2011, is designed to help entrepreneurs create their own products.
It also helps those who are already in the industry find out how to start their own businesses.
The program focuses on creating a unique product that will attract more users to the service.
The Times also reported that the program’s alumni include Mark Zuckerberg, Bill Gates, and Marc Andreessen.
Bode and his co-founders plan to run the program again this year and have raised $200 million in venture funding.
He also recently opened a consulting firm called Digital Design Fund that will provide advice and technical advice for entrepreneurs seeking to start or expand their businesses.
