Design in an Age of Globalization

Design in an Age of Globalization

“In an age of globalization, there is an increasing need for rarity, individualism and uniqueness in the selection of materials that make up our interior spaces and environments. As a result, we have crafted surface materials that allow architects and designers to create multisensory experiences that translate into lasting impressions.”

ALUMNUS MATTHEW KROG FINDS NEW APPLICATIONS FOR SKILLS LEARNED AT CAL MARITIME
As with many Cal Maritime graduates, Matthew Krog’s journey has taken a few unexpected, albeit positive, turns.

The insight into other countries—as well as the communication and leadership skills—he gained through Cal Maritime and the maritime industry have proven invaluable in his career today.
