Friday, December 04, 2009 | | Work/News

Mark English joins fellow designers Joel Robare of JR Studio and Mike Plotnick of HOK in a roundtable discussion on the impact of social networking on their own design practices.

Mark English will be co-presenting at an elite roundtable discussion on the impact of social networking on design practice, including strategies that other firms can use to incorporate social media into their overall business plans.

Architect Mark English, principal of Mark English Architects and creator of two blogs: The Architect’s Take and Green Compliance Plus
– Interior designer Joel Robare, principal of JR Studio, a boutique firm with offices in San Francisco and Chicago
– Mike Plotnick, corporate communications manager for HOK.

Featured speakers include:
