R.I.T. T-Minus

 

Modko’s Brett Teper was invited by his alma mater, R.I.T. Industrial Design, to share his experiences about design and to participate in their annual T-minus project. Over 48 teams competed this year, each composed of one representative from every level of the I.D. program to produce a product from one of four proposed challenges.

Brett was blown away by the growth of the program, the caliber of students and the accomplished and tireless faculty that crafts them into such great talent. We wanted to show our gratitude to the gracious staff and most of all show appreciation to the dedicated students for their hard work and enthusiasm!

Thank you!
