Not all designers follow a straight and narrow path to their career. In fact, many of the most gifted designers explore various creative genres before finding their true calling. Similarly, many interior designers find success and gratification in the design of products and special events. True creators often find a singular focus simply too limiting. This panel explores the diverse careers of four successful designers and in doing so reveals the true essence of creativity itself. Join Mike Ragan, Celia Barrett, David Santiago and Gary Inman for this entertaining and informative discussion.
