SVA Dot Dot Dot Lectures: Jason Santa Maria



“The Influencers” We all draw influence from somewhere. Whether it be from history, academia, industry, or whether we look to future trends. The work we do has been impressed, whether explicitly or implicitly, by the leadership or direction of others. Who were some of those influencers, and how are they present in our work? Hear from four lecturers how masters in their domains have dominated markets, inspired their own work, or changed the course, so that we might make some predictions about the next generation of influence leaders. Jason Santa Maria Jason has been recognized for designing stylistic and imaginative web interfaces that maintain a balance of usability and readability.
