“So…” Series for Emerging Designers

“So…” is the beginning of a question, an idea, a community, a statement. Emerging Designers are designers in a state of shift. Be they recent grads or professionals jumping into a new aspect of the industry, they are brought together through a quarterly series of lectures, discussions, and social networking hours. This is where we explore the essential topics that you were never taught in school, or have been dying to ask since you broke into design. And all the while, gain a supportive community of designer friends.
