Rob Van Varick, Principal of Design, Insights & Strategy and Jessica Hurwit, Senior Product Designer will be participating in the Teen Design Fair at the Cooper Hewitt next month. The aim of the Teen Design Fair is to make design and design industries understandable and accessible to high school students. By interacting with professional designers, students learn about different design disciplines and receive guidance on how to pursue futures in design. The event allows our designers to share their knowledge and experience acquired during their careers. Groups of students with varying levels of exposure to design will gain a better understanding through exposure and self-explored questions.

Mentoring is one of the core missions at Michael Graves that was instilled by our founder. Our continued realtionship with the Cooper Hewitt allows us to spread our mission to students about to embark on their journey of building a career. The awareness of opportunities for careers in design is limited by exposure and core curriculum. Michael Graves Architecture & Design believes that the education of design and design thinking is one the strongest assets you can give our youth.
