Making It: Jesse Gerard
Jesse Gerard made his first set of speakers for PhillyWorks, an exhibition of Philadelphia makers at DesignPhiladelphia 2010. At the time, the freshly minted University of the Arts grad was reconsidering his gig in design management at a local company. "My job wasn't leading to product design," he says, "at least not to human-centered design." PhillyWorks was the siren song.
