Every year, Professor Josh Owen, who chairs RIT’s industrial design department, invites a manufacturer to share a specific challenge it’s facing in an upcoming product line. At the end of each Metaproject – and there have been seven so far–partnering companies sponsor a booth at ICFF each spring. There, students play the party of freelance designers and talk up their products to passersby. For some students, like Afifi Ishak, who created a dodecahedron stickynote memo ball for Poppin during last year’s Metaproject, the whole experience turns into something even more exciting than a life lesson: his first product on the market.
