One of the good things about going to college is the resources that they offer. Taking in consideration that tuition is so high, it would be crazy not to take advantage of them.
I took some time at the beginning of my program to go to each of the online resources that the Academy of Art offers and chose the ones that could be very useful and would help me through my career. As time went by I realized that there is one that I have used the most and that I have found very helpful: WGSN.
WGSN is a trend forecasting and analysis website that gives the necessary tools and inspiration for any designer to base their project decisions. From patterns, prints, color and image library, WGSN offers insight on the design industry for people to use and apply in the best way to their projects.
Access the full site through the Online Resources Library website of the Academy of Art. Good luck on trying to close this addictive website!!
