It's the 2nd December, 2013 and after a scenic trip, I’ve arrived in Scotland’s fourth-largest city, Dundee. Famous for Jute, Jam and Journalism, as I had been forewarned, the city is going through a major re-development. The vast waterfront presently being a construction zone for Dundee’s new Victoria and Albert Museum.
I’m here at the invitation of Duncan of Jordanstone College of Art & Design to be a guru for the day. Lending my advice and guidance to students studying Digital Interaction Design and Product Design. After getting over the disappointment that this doesn’t involve ceremonial robes or a badge of honour, I get stuck into meeting the fifteen of the sixty students I’ve been allocated.
