About the speaker

Will is a creative director and designer Firebelly Design, a Chicago studio focusing on collaboration, positive change and connecting design with the world in thoughtful and appropriate ways.

He also teaches typography courses at the Chicago Portfolio School, practices hand lettering nearly everyday, photographs fading and forgotten signage, fosters dogs with his wife and is currently training for a third Chicago Marathon.

Will sees opportunities in every day obstacles. Moments for understanding, improving and playing. Design is a hands-on exercise, a marriage of art, understanding, technology and team; it requires dedication and practice. In print design, installations and web, Will uses his hands and his head to create immediate and immersive experiences that linger.
