Judson Art & Design Students experience SEEK

Posted 11.17.2013 by Jeff Carl

Eight juniors and seniors and Professor Joe Cory from the Department of Art and Design attended the annual one-day SEEK design conference at Northern Illinois University in mid-November. This year’s conference featured speakers from Firebelly and Thirst design firms in Chicago along with talks from Victor Saad, creator of the Leap Year Project, Aaron Draplin principle of Draplin Design Co. in Portland, OR, and Stefan Sagmeister of Sagmeister & Walsh in New York. Sagmeister discussed the work in his recent exhibition “The Happy Show,” which was on view at Chicago’s Cultural Center earlier this fall. The event gave Judson students the opportunity to hang out with these designers and to gain a better understanding about the profession of design.
