CONSULTING THE EDUCATIONAL & BUSINESS COMMUNITYâ€™S I interviewed Erik Roscam Abbing. As director of a Service Design firm, with a background in industrial design, design management and lecturer at the TU Delft, therefor he has a good take on the contemporary landscape designers will enter. I interviewed a business designer and art academy lecturer Mark Bode for he acquires a good perspective on the contemporary art-academy designer/ artist entering the (business) landscape. It is interesting to probe his take on what skills are essential to possess as (graduating) designers. Finally, I conducted an interview with the head of the Willem de Kooning Art Academy in Rotterdam Jeroen Chabot too get a sense of changes design education is making to prepare the students for the design landscape.
