25 students from the Harrington College of Design embarked on the annual field trip to visit the Chicago office of VOA, a leading design firm that has been awarded over 200 local and national awards for design excellence.

Harrington Alumna Lauren Andrysiak led and organized the field trip, allowing current students to glimpse how a working design firm takes concepts from their initial hand-drawn sketches to development and models. Students were welcomed by founder Vick Vickrey, and had the chance to gain insight on how closely involved clients can be in the design process.

Special thanks to Lauren and to all the designers at VOA for taking the time to provide the great tour for us!
