Sahre Victore Wilker Workshop 2009

Paul Sahre, James Victore and Jan Wilker are combining powers and putting on a week-long design workshop in NYC in July. http://sahrevictorewilker.com/

I’ve had the pleasure of meeting each of these design dynamos, “Desynamos“, over the last two years… and each designer lives up to the hype. Two summers ago I took James Victore’s poster workshop through SVA and it was nothing short of life changing. I can’t imagine a workshop with all three of these guys for a week. There is no way you could possibly leave the same designer or person as when you came. If you have $1,100 and a week in July, you owe it to yourself to be there.
