As a long-time lighting partner to many of Canada’s architecture and design firms, we’re keenly aware of a growing desire among design professionals to learn more about lighting design. “Lighting is one of the most important elements in design, yet it remains one of the most challenging for designers because there are so many technical aspects and options for them to navigate” explains LightForm President Richard Assaly. “Our goal is to support the design professionals who want to educate themselves so they can feel confident when specifying lighting for their projects. We think The Chang School’s Lighting Design course will empower them.”

Those looking to take advantage of LightForm’s LIT 101 opportunity must submit a Letter of Intent along with their Resume to LightForm by December 30th, 2018. Letters and Resumes should be sent to [email protected]. A committee of five of the industry’s top design professionals will review applicants’ eligibility. Eligibility will be determined based on: student’s acceptance into and successful completion of the course, and letter of acknowledgement from the student’s employer before classes begin in January.
