Future of Design

IxDA Atlanta proudly presents the Future of Design, a showcase of local design thought leaders giving their take on what the future holds for the role of design in business and our daily lives. In this fast pace event, each presenter will be given five minutes to convey their design future to the crowd. After the presentations we will open the floor to discuss the multiple futures presented.

Speakers are representative from interaction design, user experience, information architecture and industrial design. If you would like to present your future let us know!

    Thanks again to David D and the crew for asking me to distill some design thinking into a 5 minute preso. I enjoyed hearing folks thoughts and would be glad to do it again. If anyone else works in HealthIT, let's gang up and do a meetup about the unique constraints we face. Ralph

    All speakers presented ideas and insights that I will be thinking about for some time. Suggestion: a fun 'warm up' exercise to encourage participants to be more social before the event. Glad I attended.

    SOOO bummed to miss this but the first invite I saw came after I scheduled a dinner I'd already rescheduled 2x when I was sick so I have to keep that commitment. Will it be video taped?

  • Bill H.

    Do I need to be a member of IXDA?

  • Terry A.

    I just updated the location.
    We will be at GTRI on 14th Street. Parking is free.

    • Terry A.

      We have not streamed events much in the past as most of the value is the exchange of ideas and in person interaction. We will consider it if there is enough demand. I will be busy organizing, but if anybody wants to make stream we will post to twitter feed.
