Five Questions: Graphic designer Gil Shuler has changed the city

creative inspiration

Graphic designer Gil Shuler is the elder hippie guru that all other designers in Charleston bow down to. He's the groovy dude they all abide.
      Shuler kind of started it all. An artsy fellow from Sumter, he settled in Charleston in the fall of 1983 and helped to transform the city. Little by little everything commercial, municipal and nonprofit began to look better. And when things look better, they are better. His operation, Gil Shuler Graphic Design, has long sat at the center of the design community, an inspiration to others who have increasingly found their own niche in town.

Universities aren’t the future of design education

creative inspiration

John Spencer – who recently stepped down as an external examiner at a leading university – on why he thinks universities are failing design students and how industry-backed social enterprises may be a viable alternative. John writes :
      We love to bellyache about the failure of university design education to prepare students for a career in graphic design. One of the greatest complaints is that it hasn’t kept pace with the times and some say it’s decades out of date, but I don’t think that’s the problem at all.
