Emily Carr University of Art + Design has received a rank of 11 by the 2012 Red Dot Design ranking, as one of the most innovative art and design universities in the world. Emily Carr is the only Canadian institution to be named.
The Red Dot Design ranking seeks to honour leaders in innovation for their pursuance of design excellence through a compilation of an organization’s achievements in the Red Dot Design Award over the past 5 years.
The designer is not always right. The researcher is not always wrong. Profit is not always the motive; market research, whatever its outcome, should never be used as a good excuse for bad design – in the same sense that good design should never be used to promote a bad product. —Paul Rand
Where you innovate, how you innovate, and what you innovate are design problems. —Tim Brown
