Do you have a lot of departments in your organization? Do you each have your own brand or web site? How do you get each group to work together to centralize the look and feel? If you currently work within a large company or university, join us for this great case study on how Punk Avenue helped a Duke University develop, design and integrate into their workflow. During his discussion, Geoff DiMasi of P'unk Avenue, will demonstrate how urban planning techniques can be applied to design and technology challenges that everyone faces. He'll also discuss, how they launched a open source tool, from this development and how you might use this in your web developments.

Some of the topics that will be discussed:
? How can you use design to respect the goals/mission of individual departments or entities inside a large organization?
? Shouldn't there be a strict brand guideline for all organizations?
? Won't you end up creating choas if you allow for individual design solutions?
? What is the balance between design control and freedom in a horizontal organization?
? Do you have to redesign and rebuild all of your websites at once (if you have more than one)?
? What are basic urban design principles?
? Should universities be using open source or enterprise solutions?
? How does an open source solution advance the mission of my higher education instituation?
? Why is respect so important in the design process?
