Make is a new 175,000-sq.-ft. workspace in a converted floral trade warehouse, just a short walk or bike ride to the beach. Rapt Studio worked with real estate developer Cruzan to envision a branded space where people will design and make things—and take their breaks on the waves.

2015 SEGD Conference Past Presidents
A Strong and Expanding SEGD Community

The 2015 SEGD Conference: Experience Chicago is over and according to most of the attendees the staff came into contact with, this one was the best, one of the best, awesome, fantastic--you name the adjective; people seemed to really enjoy it.
