February 13, 2023
ID is saddened to learn that 2021 Latham Fellow Jon Veal has died. The Chicago Sun-Times has more.
As part of his fellowship, Jon participated in a video-recorded panel conversation about how designers are embracing new roles in society to create new outcomes with those most affected by their designs.
COVID disproportionately impacted Black and Brown communities around the country—affecting employment, mental health, and education, and highlighting that these systems were not designed with, or for, us all. Chris Rudd moderates a conversation with Jon Veal and other Latham panelists about how designers are embracing new roles in society to create new outcomes with those most affected by their designs.
Jon was also part of Season 1 of ID’s podcast, With Intent. Hear the episode and read the transcript for S1: Episode 8, “Faith and Permanence with Jon Veal.”
