This morning we talk with designer and Pam Daniels, a Clinical Assistant Professor and Design Innovator in Residence at The Segal Design Institute at Northwestern University. Our conversation takes place in Studio 5, where we talk about Daniels' project MEASURE, the first measuring cups where the shape itself indicates the unit of measure. You can learn more about this project on Kickstarter at which has a funding deadline for May 18.

In this conversation we talk to Daniels about her passion for design and cultivating makers, of all ages, through the work she does at Welcome Industries at Northwestern University with Brandon Williams.


Pam co-founded the not-for-profit DesignHouse Chicago, an organization dedicated to revitalizing local manufacturing through design, and most recently, she has established a design practice called Welcome Industries in partnership with Segal's Maker in Residence, Brandon Williams.  She is active in the League of Women Designers, serves as an adjunct faculty member at Archeworks, and is an advisor to Catalyze Chicago. She has been a speaker at Technori, Chicago Ideas Week, and The International Home & Housewares Show, and been featured in The Chicago Tribune, Core77, Business Week, Design Engine, Modern Luxury Interiors, and Phaidon.
