** Hello Website!
The quarter is coming to a close, but Design Club is still busy!
Design Club Trek #2! NYC Here are the details - we will be visiting 3 companies THIS FRIDAY: Redscout at 10am, Fahrenheit 212 at 1pm & Harry's at 3:30pm, and then doing a happy hour afterwards.
Redscout is an idea-led innovation agency, organized around the belief that innovation is the most powerful form of marketing. Recent client work includes improving sales for Dominos and reinventing the design and innovation process at Kate Spade. Fahrenheit 212 is an innovation consulting firm, with a focus on growth strategy. They have a differentiated approach to addressing the consumer and commercial proposition simultaneously, called Money & Magic, which we'll hear more about!
Harry's was created to disrupt the traditional shaving market, and one of the founders comes straight from Warby Parker! The company aims to provide a great shave at a great price, and donates 1% of their sales & at least 1% of their time to organizations that prepare people for personal and professional success.
We are asking for RSVPs by midnight, Wednesday through the following link:
