This year's edition of Newcity Design 50 honors those behind the scenes, who drive the creation of form, function, and beauty of design that has come to indlude all aspects of our lives in Chicago. The 2019 list considers leadership, influence and vision as its principal measures and includes Felicia Ferrone, Clinical Associate Professor of Industrial Design, Marcia Lausen, Director of the School of Design, and Jenna Blazevich, UIC Design Alum (BDes Graphic Design 2014).

We are joined on this year's list by our colleagues in the School of Architecture: Bob Somol, Director, and Assistant Professor, Thomas Kelley.
