Human-Centered Design display
MARQUETTE - Northern Michigan University's Human-Centered Design student work is on display this month in the Huron Mountain Club Gallery on the main floor of the Peter White Public Library.
This collection of design concepts is the work of junior and senior level students within the Human-Centered Design Program at NMU. The emphasis of the program focuses on the development of concepts for products, systems and services that we encounter on a daily basis.
Students work through a creative process to identify appropriate solutions to the problem at hand.

The exhibit is available for viewing during regular library hours through Oct. 30. For more information, call the Peter White Public Library at 226-4318 or visit www.pwpl.inf.
