Newcity Design [15] recently announced their annual Design 50 recognizing the people who have positively impacted Chicago design, 14 of whom are SAIC community members. Newcity Design editor Vasia Rigou (MA 2015) details that this year’s Design 50 was compiled to “celebrate the forces behind the scenes in terms of power and influence in Chicago’s design scene—those who are changing our world for the better.”
