We are sad to share the news that faculty at large Bill Drenttel passed away this morning. One of the leading contemporary minds and advocates of design, Bill was co-founder of Design Observer, partner of Winterhouse, teacher at the Yale School of Management, president emeritus of AIGA, and myriad other roles in the design world. An early proponent of design for social change, Bill was an inspiration to Products of Design and a treasured sounding board around our mission and curriculum. Bill—like Bill Moggridge—did not have a chance to work directly with the students before he passed away, but we will be forever grateful for his guiding light, and will attempt to honor his legacy around the power of design.
