Exit-level Design

Posted on | September 7, 2011 | Posted by Glen Nakasako

We got a visit today from prolific designer Ed Fella, who stopped by for lunch and showed us a couple of his new sketchbooks along with photos of his summer trip to France. Now, in his mid-70s, he’s coined himself an “exit-level designer.” He no longer engages in commercial work, instead focusing on his personal work and academia at CalArts. We here at SMOG hope to count ourselves in that club (someday).


Today is also the last day of work for our 2nd summer intern Bijan (who coincidentally interned for Ed last summer). He starts his 3rd year at CalArts and we wish him well!
