The Annual HKS Design Fellowship provides an environment in which emerging designers can be recognized and grow their talents in order to improve HKS’s design as a whole, while simultaneously benefiting the community. I was lucky enough to be selected as a 2008 fellow and I am extremely excited to be a facilitator this year. The opportunity is unbelievable, from the people you meet to the synergy of design and teamwork that is created; for me it felt like being back in college studio again. I’m really energized because for the first time, we’re extending fellowship to final year & graduate design students in an effort to share this unique and rewarding experience and collaborate with emerging talent from the local universities.
