Design and War: an Evening with Eduardo Ortiz

What is Design & War? Designer Eduardo Ortiz believes passion should drive every interaction of our every day. Passionate empathy is a tenet of clear communication, good design... and a key to waging war. In a talk about design, not about war, Eduardo will ground his experiences during deployment in the work we do as designers and content strategist, in which our mission and responsibilities are to bring passion to the work we do.

For more than 10 years, Eduardo Ortiz has been designing solutions to problems--problems that haven't always been digital and haven't always been thought of as being "designed." He hates cataloging himself as a "____ Designer" and would rather be referred to as a Designer, period, though over the past year he couldn't be called that. He was serving in the United States Marine Corps and deployed to Afghanistan. Now, he's looking to regain his title.


Many thanks to Mad*Pow for hosting Content Strategy New England!

    Really fantastic and engaging discussion about experience design and the literally life-threatening consequences of bad ( unempathic ) design decisions.

    Just read other comments on the board. Question: BPMA = Boston [Something] Marketing Association?

    Nuts. Was planning to attend, but client needs are keeping me an extra day down in Connecticut. Will drive home tonight, I hope -- but not in time to join this exciting group of people. My loss!

    As Jonathan noted, the 3rd Thursday of the month conflicts with the BPMA monthly meeting. (I'm BPMA's webmaster and website board director.) Jonathan--see you tomorrow night?
