Remembering John Little

Carnegie Mellon University’s School of Design was truly saddened to hear of the passing of alumnus John Little (1956) this past November. John was an incredibly accomplished product designer who was hired by the Ford Motor Company right out of his senior year at CMU.  John’s work could be seen all throughout the automotive industry and his presence and expertise will truly be missed.

Our 3rd year Communication Design students created public service messages to tell the story of the region's current state of broadband connectivity. The students' campaigns are critical in helping raise awareness, advocate for and educate the general population about the importance of high-speed connectivity and its role in our day-to-day lives.
