Did you know that this year (2017) marks the 35th anniversary of AutoCAD?
Developed and marketed by AutoDesk, AutoCAD was initially release in December 1982 as a desktop app running on microcomputers with internal graphics controllers (from Wikipedia). Perhaps not quite as interesting to you, this was just over 3 years before I was born (Jan 1986), which leads me to why todays post is such a cool one and one that is a huge honor for me to even be able to write.
To celebrate 35 years of helping design, create and engineer the world and our futures from the ground up, AutoCAD has decided to highlight and recognize the next generation of designers and users of AutoCAD by creating the AutoCAD 35 under 35 young designers list..
It’s with a ton of excitement and thanks to everyone at AutoCAD (Leah was awesome to work with!) to be able to announce that I was included in inaugural list! I couldn’t be happier and more excited to be included alongside the other amazing designers, artists and AutoCAD users on the 35 under 35 list and I look forward to our futures and the future of AutoCAD for many years to come!
Here is the introduction to the list from the AutoCAD Blog:
In December, the AutoCAD team will officially celebrate 35 years of software created to help you design the world from the ground up. Inspired by our past and engineered for the future, AutoCAD is here to make sure you have the tools you need to build anything you can imagine. Our software has been instrumental in designing some of the world’s most beautiful, groundbreaking, and innovative products and buildings, and now we’re looking forward to seeing how the next generation of creators uses it. With that in mind, we’re proud to announce the AutoCAD 35 Under 35 young designers list.
Also, if you know a young designer that you think should be included in the next part of the 35 under 35 list, make sure you head over to the post and click the Let Us Know link near the bottom of the page!
As always, thank you all so much for reading.
Cheers and happy drafting!
