When we talk about our academic initiatives, we usually refer to universities, our lab donation program, and our Design Scholarship. We love to support up-and-coming designers with easy access to design software.It’s come to our attention, though, that there are schools out there implementing Vectorworks courses below the college level. Thanks to our Canada office, we stumbled upon a high school with its own digital design program — and Mt. Douglas Secondary School in Victoria, BC, Canada has quite a touching story.

Alex Rose understands the value of saving time in the entertainment industry. As a project manager at AV Matters in Orlando, Florida, he oversees the production and technical details of a wide range of events, including corporate conferences, galas, and social and charity events. Although the process of producing an event from start to finish can be stressful due to tight deadlines, it’s become much easier for Rose, as the firm recently made the switch from AutoCAD to Vectorworks Spotlight to help with the design and execution of each event.
