LDS IES Ballard 400

Jan 11, 2021

Date: Wednesday, January 20th 2021 

Time: 12:00pm – 1:00pm 

Fee : Free (Virtual on ZOOM)

Description:

This presentation will share how designers use concepts for creativity and cohesiveness in their designs. Do you understand strategies to create a design concept? Do you know how that concept can inspire your design solution? Are you bored with the same old solutions? Do you want to put some more spark in your lighting game? A creative concept can provide the inspiration you need to create cohesive lighting designs and augment your work. 

Jeanne’s network and collaboration opportunities through IES has been amazing and she can’t wait to share creative concepts from her students, her professional work, and the work of other professionals.
