To coincide with the exhibition, a gallery talk has been scheduled for Thursday, May 15 at 1pm. Gretchen Wieshuber, who teaches Typography at Parkland College and also owns her own design studio called Studio 2D, will present a talk “Designers and the Creative Process” and will expand upon the idea of harnessing the power of the creative process. “Designers are paid to be creative day in and day out. We can't wait around for inspiration to hit when deadlines loom, so we have a process that leads us dependably to creative solutions to problems. Anyone can use this process for any problem
