Our process begins with site visits to manufacturing facilities. We capture the experience in video so we can share it as inspiration during our Design Jams—high energy, pro-bono work sessions in which top product designers come together to develop new consumer goods which can be made here in Chicago. Designers get the experience of working together to benefit local industry. Local manufacturers get the opportunity to diversify their revenue stream by producing well-designed new products.
Our first jam features SKOL Manufacturing and will be held on Thursday, June 26 at TEAMS Design in Chicago. It's by invitation only and will be held from 6-9:30p at 1812 W. Hubbard St.
