Embracing the Challenge
Join design visionary Craig Franke of Franke+Fiorella for an intimate lunch discussion about “Embracing the Challenge of Change.” We learn at an early age that change is the only constant. But who could have ever been prepared for the fast pace of change we see in all aspects of our lives today? Craig Franke will share his perspectives on the challenge of change in his work as a designer and how he tries to embrace rather than resist it.
