“Known Unknowns” interviews: Tom Wicks

Tom’s graduation project, “Show Not Tell”, fuels political campaigns with mobile data. We asked Tom at the show about his experience studying at Goldsmiths, and this is what he had to say:

“The course’s been brilliant. It’s unlike anything. I guess the question that the course answers is: what’s a design degree in a time when we can kind of learn anything on the Internet? It’s got to give you the things which aren’t necessarily technical skills, but just about the conversations and the things that you have here, which are really, really interesting, so it’s worth being here. I think what they’ve done is create this culture where you can talk about anything, where any idea is OK. And I think that’s really brilliant. But also, a sort of critical approach to design as well, that is able to question, makes you think.”
