Do You Have to Go to University? w/ Robi Farkas - #17 (iamrobifarkas)
Today I'm joined by Robi Farkas we first met at a conference event in London and then again at a networking event hosted by The Futur earlier this year and I thought his story was really inspiring.

Helping them grow, solve problems, meet new people and potentially network with an agency who could find them a job. I am often asked about whether university is worth it for design and I felt Robi's story would be really insightful to share with you since he's tried both the traditional and non traditional routes. On today's show you'll hear more about Robi's story, how the course went down and some tips for design education.
