March Community Discussion: Ahhhhh sh*t, not this topic again. Hasn't someone figured this out already?
Led by Josh Cook

This month Josh Cook will be leading us on a discussion about art vs. design and the grey area in between. While we fully expect Josh to take a stab at solving what differentiates art from design, we've also known him to be an individual with an agenda. The art vs. design debate stops here (unless Josh has his way, it which case it'll probably get more convoluted). Also, he brought a participation prize last time. Just sayin.

Jordan is a graphic designer, illustrator and artist working under the name WONGFACE. He is originally from Pittsburgh and studied at California University of Pennsylvania, receiving a dual bachelors degree in Graphic Design and Marketing. As a member of AIGA Pittsburgh, Jordan served on the chapter’s programming committee before relocating to Cleveland. Since then, he has started his own business, shown artwork throughout the city, worked on CAC SfAPT (Cuyahoga Arts and Culture Support for Artists Planning Team), and assumed the role of design partner at the art organization SPACES. Jordan specializes in illustrative work and is inspired by empowering narratives, tongue-in-cheek humor, and imaginative quirkiness.
