Whipsaw Senior Showcase 2020

Whipsaw is hosting its first virtual event to support our young design community in light of the many lost opportunities the class of 2020 has experienced due to the CoVid-19 crisis.

In this upcoming two-hour virtual showcase, 10 industrial design students from across the US will present their senior projects to a group of top industrial design professionals, firms and academics.

Each participating university nominated one senior project that stood out for its bold vision and originality. The works being featured in this event will give a sampling of what’s to come in the next generation of 2020s design.

The selected students will each have six minutes to present their project followed by a brief question and answer segment. Thirty minutes of panelist feedback and critique will follow the presentations. 

Our esteemed group of panelists includes Whipsaw CEO Dan Harden, IDSA San Francisco Chapter President Basak Altan, IDEO Cofounder Mike Nuttall, Head of Global Customer Experience Design at Amazon Nasahn Sheppard, and Manta Product Development Co-Owner and VP of Design Betsy Goodrich.
