Scout Books and PNCA's / OCAC's joint MFA in Applied Craft + Design are proud to present:
Make it Happen, Randy Hunt on about Design, Entrepreneurship, and Etsy
Hunt is the Creative Director at Etsy, where he leads a team of designers creating the end-to-end experience, both online and off. Hunt feels strongly that designers must be able to build what they design, a perspective that fits naturally with Etsy’s culture of making and the love of craftsmanship. Etsy was founded in 2005 and is as they explain on their site, "the marketplace we make together". Their mission is to reimagine commerce in ways that build a more fulfilling and lasting world. Over the past eight years, their members have grown to 30 million, with over 900,000 active shops, $895 million in goods sold in 2012, and over one billion page views per month.
Hunt co-founded Supermarket, a curated design marketplace. Previously, he founded Citizen Scholar Inc. and worked at Milton Glaser Inc. and Number 17. He writes and lectures about design and has been a visiting designer and critic at many colleges and universities. His first book, Product Design for the Web will be published in November.
Scout Books are Little Books for Big Ideas.
