Rick Griffith on Mentorship


“I’ve been lucky enough to have several mentors,” Griffith narrates. “Many, perhaps, unaware of the influence they’ve had on me.” In the video he explores the idea of mentorship and its importance in the career of design, all the while demonstrating a print process using traditional techniques.

“In some ways, the mentee is just as important as the mentor.”
