Sean Schumacher (he/they) is a designer and educator whose research focus is in increasing public access to design-focused media. Their show Did I Do That? is a conversational design podcast about iterating through failure while still being able to laugh about it. As a practicing designer, Sean has specialized in creating projects for artists and arts institutions for over a decade, including several years working on Portland Institute for Contemporary Art’s internationally-recognized Time-Based Art Festival.
Sean helps to manage the School of Art+Design’s in-house design studio, DES 425 A+D Projects, with Kate Bingaman-Burt. They also teach and produces Show & Tell, where the students of DES 125 host PSUGD’s kinda-sorta weekly design lecture series. They seek to give students agency through collaboration in the classroom, through event production, publication design, and concept development.Click here to book an appointment with this advisor
