AMT Faculty lead “The Studio and the Consultancy” AIGA/NY panel at MAD, Thursday 12/4

Written by:


Things and Contexts looks at two models of design practice and their relationship to making and audiences — the studio, which generates authored creative output to create specific experiences, and the consultancy, which brings an authored process to a problem to articulate and define dynamic systems. Each event in this series will feature a pair of designers who each embody one of these approaches and work in the fields of  interaction design, branding, social practice, and education.


AMT Faculty and Communications Design Assistant Director Juliette Cezarr is organizing this presentation and panel discussion focusing on design education at the Museum of Art and Design (MAD) this Thursday. AMT Associate Dean and Henry Wolf Professor, Lucille Tenazas, will be one of the speakers.
