Veronica Corzo-Duchardt, Cuban-American designer and artist behind Chicago-based creative studio, Winterbureau, is the next-in-line to treat us to engaging, enlighting real talk, Weapons of Mass Creation Fest style.

A bit about Winterbureau / Veronica:

Since its start in 2009, Winterbureau has focused on creating culturally rooted, story-driven work in the arts, publishing and wine industries. The studio keeps a balance of self-initiated projects, collaborations, exhibitions and client work. Clients have included School of the Art Institute of Chicago, The Museum of Contemporary Photography and Chicago Ideas week. Projects include the Neche Collection, a visual archive and print series of objects collected by her grandfather throughout his life, the stories they tell and the work they inspire. Podcast Thing is a collaborative project with Max Temkin and Veronica Corzo-Duchardt that interviews interesting people and the podcasts they listen to.
