kegan fisher

Kegan Fisher (grad 2007) joins us, officially, here at IDalum and I am very proud to have her on the roster. You should already know what Kegan is up to, if you don't you're asleep at the wheel. She is co-founder of Design Glut, with Liz Kinnmark, another towering Pratt ID force. Design Glut is a very hot I.D. and styles resource that not only identifies what is happening and who is doing what, but it has become a portal for Kegan and Liz to generate new projects, programs and associations related to design and the promotion of design.
Kegan also has her own website Kegan Fisher which is in the process of a terrific expansion - check it out.
I have already posted a link through a feature-add of Ana Linares, the Design Glut curated ICFF show "Uncomfortable Conversations" .
Kegan has produced products, jewelry, as well as props, and so many numerous items and alliances is is impossible to list. Her products are featured in print, in press, and online; the Design Glut force is a powerhouse. I will feature more of this creative explosion as this blog moves forward. For now, I congratulate her on her vision, direction, and talent!

Daniel Stevens (grad. 06) has joined us here and it is with great pleasure that we now post his website, DanielStevens.com
Daniel has been busy, as he notes:
"Working for a sleepwear company designing graphics for Disney. Me and my friend Antonio also started up a kids product company (in the works) and will be starting up a Pinewood Derby league in brooklyn. I'll keep you informed on the progress."
His graphic and illustration work are lovely extensions of the work he was doing at Pratt, as is the other work - I look forward to posting more work shortly with feature images as well!
