Juniors in Western Washington University’s Industrial Design Program will have their work featured at an exhibit, along with University of Washington students, at 6 p.m. on May 31 on the fourth floor of Tether Inc, at 316 Occidental Ave. in South Seattle.

The class will showcase projects it has worked on throughout the year at the exhibit, and one student from Western and UW will give a presentation on their Industrial Design college portfolios and accomplishments from the year.

The class also nominated three members to present to an Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) committee for Junior of the Year. The committee then selects the top student based on that presentation; Louis Dawson (Industrial Design, Carbondale, Colo.) was selected as Western’s IDSA Junior of the Year.

Western Associate Professor of Industrial Design Jason Morris said the junior class has produced diverse pieces that have been very creative.

“They worked with Transition Bicycle Company to develop bicycle products, they turned industrial scrap into beautiful new products, and they designed some fantastic designs for restaurants and Puma retail stores,” he said.
