About our Conference Chair
George Garrastegui, Jr. is a design educator and creative consultant in New York City. He has a background in publishing, marketing, and strategy, which has allowed him to craft solutions for brands such as Esquire, Ford, Cadillac, and Popular Mechanics. George now focuses on teaching strategic problem-solving at CUNY’s NYC College of Technology (City Tech) and hosts a podcast, Works in Process, that explores artists’ and designers’ methodologies.
George is fueled by the pursuit of uncovering ways to give emerging designers access and opportunities as a member of both the AIGA DEI initiative and 100 Roses from Concrete.
Over the years, he’s learned that there’s no one way to be a creative, but endless possibilities fueled by passion, purpose, and process.
