Sharing open studio space with other designers can be an invaluable asset, but also hard to come by as a student or young professional. This student co-work lab time offers a chance to get feedback on your work from experienced design professionals and other student attendees outside your classroom environment.

Have a specific project and need a second opinion? Want to talk to a professional in your area and seek out some advice? This is the space to do it. Ask questions, share a cool idea, or simply meet new designers and learn more about what they're doing in your community. 

Don't be shy. This is a casual working environment and not a portfolio review. Bring whatever you're currently working on or an old project that you want to revisit with some fresh eyes.

Five experienced professionals from graphic design, interior design, and industrial design backgrounds will be facilitating the co-work session. Registration is limited to 25 students and young professionals from all design disciplines. 

Attendance is free but registration is required.
