And Kate Hunt, experience designer and former director of Design for Good – AIGA West Michigan, will share insights about her experience helping the design community thrive in Grand Rapids.
Held at the beautiful Owens Community College’s Center for Fine and Performing Arts, these dynamic speakers will leave you feeling inspired and better connected to your purpose in the industry.
