Hear it!

"In Fall 2010, as director of the School of Interior Architecture & Design at the Academy of Art University, I worked with a team of students from the AAU Interiors and Industrial Design departments on the ICFF international furniture design competition. This was an extraordinary collaboration between students of different design disciplines who produced an excellent, cohesive group project within stringent deadlines.

Shaun Dunn was selected as one of three participants from the School of Industrial Design. He soon became a student director. It was an honor and delight to work with him. Shaun is a designer driven by creativity, with the strength to propose and defend his own very valid concepts, and the balance to incorporate the ideas of others and understand the collaborative process. He is a team player who is capable of taking on a leadership role. He stimulates and encourages the team, selflessly shares his technical expertise, and dedicates himself without limitation to the development and successful finalization of the project.

Shaun proved to be creative and professional at every level. I wish him great success and I hope to have the opportunity of working with him again in the future."
