Ace of Shades Blake Jensen and his business partner Chase Fischer started Blender's Eyewear just over a year ago. Last week they visited a new class I started teaching this quarter on design entrepreneurship at the Art Institute of California-San Diego. They wanted to explain the options, challenges and advantages of starting your own business right out of college. Here is part one – note: the video was an afterthought so if you can excuse the shaky camera work on my part, I think you will find it worth watching. For more information on where to buy the sun glasses or to see their inspiring work, visit their web site: Blenders Eyewear

I couldn't resist getting into the picture, I think the shades look cool on me don't you?
