In addition to evening courses, the Summer Intensive program includes once-per-week daytime lectures and studio tours.
Last week, students toured HUGE under the guidance of VP of User Experience Michal Pasternak, and yesterday, they visited the WORKSHOP’s collaborative work space in DUMBO. A socially responsible design studio, the WORKSHOP team shares their panoramic suite with other talents including Jason Santa Maria (founder, Mighty) and Jerri Chou (co-founder, All Day Buffet, The Feast, TBD, and Lovely Day). Suite neighbors web designer and developer Erica Heinz and iPhone app designer Larry Legend also dropped by to add to the conversation of what they do and how they do it. The afternoon concluded with Q&As, waffles, and a lingering, longing look out of the windows onto the Manhattan bridge.
Next week, we conclude the “DUMBO” tours with a stop at frog design in Manhattan to learn more about the prodigious global innovation firm. We’re also excited to welcome Masashi Kawamura to kick off our first lecture of the Summer Intensive this Friday.
