IHA International Housewares Show – Chicago 2013
The Original Spatula City – Watch the Commerical
It’s time for the International Housewares Show again in Chicago! We’re proud to show off our biggest and best design to date for Meyer. From a conceptual sketch through designing the details of workstations, this project evolved into the largest exhibit on the show floor in a matter of months. Design challenges were solved within four weeks and then Metro Exhibits had approximately six (6) weeks to produce the components. Finally installation teams have about five days to unpack the crates, set it up, merchandise the product and be ready for show time. And then four days later, I&D teams have three days to take it all down and pack it up. Makes the three-ring circus seem easy!
Going on now March 2-5 2013 || McCormick Center, Chicago USA

Anytime you mix a comedian, a minister, and a psychologist your’re getting some great insights! Keynote speaker, Dr. Will Miller was awesome. And, I’m spent! Just wrapped a busy day of lectures and networking, at the EDPA Access event. I’ve met alot of great people and have had some great conversations. More tomorrow..
It’s wheels up and off to Palm Springs! This event is looking to be a lot of fun and a great chance to expand our industry knowledge, explore some new techniques and learn from the best. Specifically, I’m excited to dive deep into the topics outside of the design perspective, and soak up insight on the aspects of costing and marketing leadership. These are inter dynamic issues crucial to shaping winning concepts. It will be great to grow our skills and bring more insight home to our clients.
I’ll be posting some random updates from the EDPA ACCESS 2012 and looking to keep it interesting and relevant. I’m also looking forward to seeing industry friends, meeting new peers and partners. We’ll also be introducing our talents and design services to builders. We had great success recently, winning the EDPA Midwest’s Designers Challenge, and would love to show more companies what we can do for them. See our 1st place concept here.
Escaping the impending mid-western winter seems like a great idea too. Maybe I’ll see you out there!
