Over 200 students gathered at Priority Designs on September 29, 2017 for an Open House with our staff. Students traveled from over 11 schools across 4 states to join us for the event. Beginning the evening with a portfolio review, students brought in their work to be reviewed individually with staff designers and engineers. The party kicked off outside on the patio with a food truck, pedal cart races, and a s’mores bar!
Students were invited to attend a variety of discussions. Topics included tips on how to interview and get a job, the design process, engineering at a design firm, user research and special projects like IDEA award winners IncludeFitness and the Q-Collar. Throughout the evening, students were given tours for a behind the scenes look around the studio and shop, with the chance to see digital knitting, casting, 3D printing and more.
"It was a jam-packed evening with games, food, and real world insight into product development."
