Stan Rickel is the driving force behind the launch of the initiative, ArcWorks Design which is the creative ingredient in the manufacturing division of Arc of Monroe County in Rochester, NY.  It is a collaboration with internationally recognized designers in the creation of new products that focus on celebrating the differences and the relationship between designed products and the consumer. This process creates a sustainable in-house product development and manufacturing practice while enriching social/community outreach. Rickel firmly believes in the abilities of individuals with developmental disabilities and feels that their unique character and gifts can enrich the field of industrial design.
