The design field is a mixed bag of people having had formal education in design school and others who learn design on the job and become designers as a matter of course.

Once someone is a designer, how do they improve their trade? Do they improve their trade or are there a bunch of laurels they can just lie around on all day and be inspired?

Then there's the question of applying the education you acquire. How the hell do you do that? That's insane.

Josh and Ross discuss the idea of continuing education for designers and what balance of formal and informal practice needs to take place.
