Week 11, Class 2

Type Manual

I need to apologize again: I saw some of the work that was made ready for the show and reacted because I felt I had not supported enough of you as well as I should have. You did the work in good faith (well, very nearly all of you) and I felt that I did not get to show the full brilliance of the class because I did not do enough of my job as an instructor.

The first thing I have to examine as a designer and an educator is my own part in this: the assignment was an experiment and you have done everything i asked with great verve. I did not manage my time well and did not get to help people who were struggling enough. We will wrap up the manual and I will make sure you have a copy of it by the last day we meet.
