Institute graduates John Nottingham and John Spirk featured, both class of 1972, in Today show series American Story.
After graduating from The Cleveland Institute of Art in 1972 with degrees in Industrial Design, lots of ideas and $600 between them, John Nottingham and John Spirk met for coffee and dreamed up an American dream. They established what has become one of the most successful industrial design firms in the country. Four hundred and sixty-five commercialized patents later, Nottingham-Spirk Design Associates' inventions include the Crest SpinBrush, Swiffer SweeperVac, and the Arctic Twister ice cream maker. NBC's Bob Dotson profiled these two high-profile CIA graduates for his American Story series. Click this link to view the program, which aired on NBC on July 23, 2007 and includes 2006 Industrial Design graduate Rachel Nottingham.
