CAP TL 1038x542 James Mauro A 1
Past Event

Mauro Porcini and James Damian

We have a design pairing worthy of the best cup of coffee you can brew at home. We have Mauro Porcini, or the Italian Stallion in the design universe (oh and Chief Design Officer at PepsiCo). Also, only in this episode of Think & Link, Pants Optional do we insist shoes are required because Mauro is only as famous as his shoes. Porcini is paired with James Damian, another great friend of Capsule and design icon we often compare to the great Neil Diamond, but much younger of course. It will be hard to contain the inspiration coming from the conversations these two will spark.

About Think & Link

We will again be discussing the topics of the week sparked by questions from my co-host Kelly Leighton and myself, Aaron Keller. We invented Think & Link during the last recession and have gratefully kept it going as a monthly event for a decade. As we all face this troubling time, our team looks to do what we can to help connect our friends and nourish their intellectual curiosity along the way.

Think & Link, Pants Optional, is our way of giving something to our community as we seek new opportunities, friendships and professions.

Our format is a 30 minute Q&A discussion hosted by Kelly Leighton and Aaron Keller, of Capsule followed by a small group discussion where you’ll be able to meet and discuss the topic of the day for 25 minutes.

About The Hosts
