One thought on “Jason Mayden

I expect to set up a ‘field trip’ for my Community College Design students … when will this presentation take place and the time of the event.

We have been able to come during Design Week with a free admission in the past and hope to do so again … my students have limited resources and commute from Orange County which is costly. We have been most appreciative in the past due to the incredible opportunity to view the history of; the incredible displays of; and the most innovative of DESIGN pieces at this time.

I will be expecting approximately 20 – 25 students.
