FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
WEETU’S KEVIN ESTRADA, SHAPING NEW-TO-DESIGN MINDS AT PARSONS
New York, NY – This Fall, weetu’s most professorial member, Kevin Estrada, will be taking his talents over to a classroom in the School of Constructed Environments at Parsons the New School for Design. Kevin will be teaching an Interior Design (ID) Studio, a course introducing students who are new to design to the fields of ID and space-making.
Like these students, many of whom will hold undergraduate degrees in other disciplines, Kevin’s background in architecture and design will make his classroom a uniquely diverse creative environment. And, by incorporating his own interests in NYC culture, materiality and new technologies, Kevin’s students will be exposed to more than just the basics of an introductory studio course. “Nobody does translucent like Kevin”, says super fan and supportive partner, weetu’s founder Carly Cannell, “Not only will his expertise prove to be extremely valuable to these students, but his imaginative perspective is unmatched. Personally, I can’t wait to participate in his studio reviews.”
Leaving the weetu office and heading to buy fresh felt tips, Kevin told weetu, “The spheres of academia and professional practice can and should influence each other. One should not be isolated from the other.”
weetu is a design firm specializing in architecture and branding with offices in Chicago and New York. Since its founding in 2007, weetu has worked across disciplinary boundaries – bringing together experienced creative professionals from distinct backgrounds – to generate new methods, ideas and products as real solutions for real problems.
Inventive solutions are developed through a design process revolving around the concept of “collaborative play.” It is through this hands-on approach that weetu's skilled teams are able to envision and explore ideas free of construct or limitation, while still grounding their work in the expertise derived from years spent within their respective fields.
