A Breadth of Fresh Design Talent at 2019 WantedDesign Brooklyn

Expanded this year into two floors, WantedDesign Brooklyn is setting a new mark in its dedication to showcasing underground talent — this year gathering graduating designers from some 30 world’s leading design schools.

I walked through the show’s two floors (through May 20 at Industry City in Brooklyn) and talked to the designers about their schools’ programs, creative influences, and what’s next on their agenda.
