Imprint Presents John Maeda

He also brought along several esteemed guests Jackie Xu, Sash Catanzarite, John Underkoffler, & Ivan Bercovich to stoke the conversation. My favorite parts were when he discussed his experiences visiting and working in Japan as a Japanese American, and also his inspiring idea of “do both.”
