Chicago Reader Profiles ID Instructor Chris Rudd
January 12, 2021
Chris Rudd, ID instructor specializing in community-driven design at IIT Institute of Design (ID), has been profiled by the Chicago Reader, which has characterized him as the “anti-capitalist face of design.”
“Rudd straddles formal institutions and grassroots organizing, contributor Ashley Lukasik writes, “using design as a catalyst for creating equity while simultaneously demanding the field dismantle its own inherent racism.”
In the article, Rudd considers the relationship between anti-racism and capitalism, and ID students Jessica Jacobs and Justin Walker discuss his contributions to design and ID, as well as his impact.
