De:sign Chicago

Last week Don Norman organized a meeting of the design minds in Chicago with the aid of the newly founded Segal Design Institute (endowed by Crate & Barrel founders, Gordon and Carole Segal). Educational representatives from Northwestern U., The School of the Art Institute of Chicago, U. of Illinois-Chicago, and the Illinois Institute of Chicago joined up with industry envoys from IDEO, Herbst Lazar Bell (HLB), and Skidmore Owings & Merrill (SOM). The event offered an opportunity to learn more about each other as key Chicago design institutions with discussions centered upon fruitful collaborative opportunities. Stay tuned for future design events and leadership from the windy city.
