What Is Sprowt?
Sprowt is an initiative to support emerging designers in their transition from university to a professional career. Currently, we’re gathering feedback from local graduates and employers and plan to use that data to develop educational resources for design students and recent graduates. Stay tuned for announcements about upcoming surveys and site developments!
Sprowt was recently launched by Justin Kuntz and Ryan Lascano, and we’ll be keeping an eye on it in the coming weeks and months.
It’s that time of year again.
