“seitz retired from teaching at mcad in 2002. reflecting back on his thirty-year career, he said, “i’m sorry to say that i used to be a terrifying teacher. too often i was unnecessarily harsh. however, my intensity was based on my belief that design was a serious business and my students must be serious about their studies if they were to succeed. i am still a modernist at heart, but i now know that there is more than one way to create good design. you might say that i’m a recovering perfectionist.” – peter seitz
