The ADMCi School for Digital Craftsmanship


A school dedicated entirely to the craft of user-centered design. 

Defining a new standard in digital craftsmanship for recent graduates and career-switching professionals. 

Businesses are trying to be more customer-focused (that's code for 'user-centered'). Products like Apple's are lauded for being beautiful and easy to use (also code for 'user-centered').

These are the skills and insights we teach every day.

Full-Stack Craftsman - The Future of Craftsmanship?

For the makers of connected objects used by living beings, the story already in motion today is impacting today’s craftsmen, designers, tinkerers, engineers, artists, entrepreneurs, and prosumers. This is what I wish to explore in an effort to inform makers of connected designed objects on how to elevate their craft or excite others into exploring this realm of industrial design meets digital product development.

Designing for 'PastPresentFuture'

Eric La Brecque, writer, brand story teller, reinventor of city narratives jumps in the fray on what's happening around us as our ability to create through mix-and-match technologies from all generations continues to explode around us.
