MICHAEL DITULLO SKETCH WORKSHOP
Advanced Design Sketching teamed up with IDSA Chicago this summer to provide sketching workshops to the students of the UIC IDSA Student Chapter. It began as a way to fill a summer void of design practice for students. Adjunct Assistant Professor and IDSA Chicago Chair Hector Silva wanted to provide an opportunity for students to be productive, get motivated and to learn from some of the most talented designers of our time. We had the pleasure of hosting Industrial Designer Michael DiTullo and lead a sketch workshop and a post graduation discussion. Michael will be back in October as the keynote speaker for the inaugural Square 1 Conference.
