Free 4 Day Workshop with Leading Housewares Company

Written by:


Looking for Parsons design students or 2019 recent graduates with strong visualization skills interested in participating in an intensive 4-day workshop to design new products & patterns for a global leader in housewares. Students will work in groups of two to propose concepts which both refresh the brand as well as open new market directions.

Working directly with the company’s top creative team as well as leading Parsons faculty, workshop participants will have the opportunity to have high-level feedback with professional quality design briefing. Students will translate their concepts into visualized renderings that include both possible products as well as contextual scenarios.

Top designs may be selected to be displayed in the brand’s booth at the 2020 International Housewares Show in Chicago.
