This week the Art & Design department brought in Andy Pratt from San Francisco to lead a two-day workshop on Interactive Design. Fifteen students were selected to participate in the interactive workshop that ran Thursday and Friday this week in the Learning Studio. Andy walked students through the process of collaborating with developers and designers around the world on web media projects.

He is an Executive Creative Director for Favorite Medium, a global design and technology agency with offices in Seoul and Singapore. Prior to this, he worked as a creative director at Funny Garbage, an interactive agency in New York City.
