We lost an amazing design pioneer when Bill Moggridge passed away on September 8. Not only did Bill co-found IDEO and helm the Cooper Hewitt, Bill helped inspire and frame the earliest ideas of what the d.school might be. Many d.school faculty and students gratefully remember his mentoring, his nurturing heart, his optimism and encouragement, and his profoundly considered ideas. He engaged students in such a deeply human way, many only came to learn of his stature in the design world long after their first encounters with him.
Bill will be missed as a champion for spreading design in the world; we will do our utmost to honor and extend his legacy.
