Elpitha Tsoutsounakis' history with work is a fascinating one, taking her from completing a M.Arch at the University of Texas at Austin to being pivotal in the formation of the Multi-disciplinary design program at the University of Utah—and a variety of things in between. Along with teaching beginning design studios, introduction to design thinking, design history, and typography (and coordinating curriculum, development, and special projects for the program), Elpitha is a designer and letterpress printer. Her studio, Print In Cursive, explores design and making beyond the traditional definitions of architecture, graphic or product design to include all aspects of the built environment at multiple scales. Her design research focuses on the creation of prints and artifacts that seek to raise awareness of social issues as well as coordinating inter-disciplinary investigations and projects.
Join us as Elpitha brings this multi-disciplinary perspective to a discussion of the rich nature and definition of WORK—and how we as humans pursue making it meaningful and useful.
