Following a successful first year, Be Original Americas is once again offering a summer design fellowship in 2017. The program gives two students the opportunity to learn the ins and outs of manufacturing original design. Be Original Americas just launched a Kickstarter campaign to support the fellowship.
Over a seven-week intensive program, the students will shadow top companies, such as Carnegie, Herman Miller, Vitra, and Bernhardt Design. Through visits with industry leaders that champion authentic design, the fellows will come away with an understanding of all sides of the business, from research, design, and manufacturing, to marketing, sales, and distribution.
