PIVT: Moving Beyond the Smoke & Mirrors of Design
CREATING AN OPEN & HONEST CONVERSATION ABOUT DESIGN PIVT explores the role of failure in the design process. It is an online platform that facilitates constructive feedback and collaboration. My experience with portfolio websites and the lack of constructive feedback that exists in the communication between designers is the driving force behind PIVT. The projects and process shots that exist on traditional portfolio sites are generally intended to be extremely polished, which gives a false sense of perfection within the design process. PIVT is not a portfolio site, but a platform for designers to learn from failure, success, and process.
