PROGRAM KEY THEMES

Digital Disruptions

We will discuss the future of technologies and media, and how to create truly disruptive experiences, and products that will change the way we live. We will address topics like wearable and other technologies that aim to disrupt daily life.

 

Start-up Driven Innovation

Innovators from startups will share their insights into how to welcome innovation into engineering-driven work cultures, and how to implement design methods that will increase creativity.

 

People Centered Design

How can you apply design to create innovative products, strategies or experiences by understanding humans? We are interested in creating disruptive technologies, but in order to do so, we must first ask about how to craft genuinely meaningful interactions. 

 

New Frontiers for Making & Fabrication

We will explore the impact that new modes of making might have on design thinking. for example, how will rapid prototyping change ideation and the design process? How do fabrication methods affect the way we understand and design products and experiences?
