The first designer profile presentation given yesterday was by Adam Logsdon. When Adam was young, he enjoyed building with blocks and legos creating his own creations instead of following the directions. When he got to high school he enrolled into some drafting courses giving him a head start into the world of architecture. Adam currently is a grad student in the college of design studying architecture and is working at design firm drafting blue prints and floor plans for future projects. Adam believes that the future of design will incorporate more use of technology with 3D printing and digital fabrication. These technologies also allow more collaboration in the field of design.
The next design profile presentation that was given was given by Julie Sniadowski. Julie also got her interest in design from a young age with taking art lessons in drawing and painting. When she got to high school she also enrolled in drafting classes sparking her interest in architecture. Currently, Julie is a grad student in the college of design and is working on a design problem that involves ways to remove radiation from the grounds near the ohio river in Paducah, KY. Like Adam, Julie also believes that the future of design will be heavily influenced by the use of technology, such as drones and other machines that can assist in solving these design problems.
The final design presentation that was given was given by Heather Hemmer. Unlike the other two, Heather got her start in design at a later age. She became interested in design when taking an art class in High School. Before that she was really into sports and athletics. Currently, Heather is in her third year of design school and would like to move to San Francisco when done with her degree. She also has plans to travel abroad to study design in the winter and next summer. Heather thinks that the future of design is going where we are going. Which i would assume means in the direction of a very technologically based practice.
