Ryan Honey, co-founder and Creative Director at production agency Buck, recently spent several days with Digital Design students, inspiring them with Buck’s amazing work, reviewing their projects, and even having lunch with a lucky few. On top of that he kept a diary of his time here, revealing his passion for helping the next generation of designers.
“It was a whirl-wind week,” Ryan writes, “that reminded me of why I got into the industry in the first place – that hunger and passion to create new experiences. And it’s inspiring to see students who have so much boundless energy and enthusiasm and can’t wait to embark on their careers. My time with the Digital Design program as an Artist in Residence was bittersweet. I love our collaborative environment at Buck but I do miss that infectious enthusiasm students bring to the mix.”
The lunch featured “a broad ranging conversation that included a dialogue on the ethical role of a designer in our society.” Ryan was also the keynote presenter at Appetizers, the graduating class showcase, where students highlight their best work. “It was really awe-inspiring to see so much nascent talent, and it made me really excited about the future of our craft.”
