Design Thinking II with Julia Hoffmann

This event is SOLD OUT!

Event Overview
Design is always changing. It continually transforms how we engage with each other and our world in new and exciting ways. New processes, strategies and technologies are invented. Historical precedents are reevaluated and critiqued. Innovative storytelling and narrative techniques are formed.

Design Thinking is a biannual lecture series devoted to those who are driving this constant process of change. It features design leaders, educators, curators, and authors who are actively reshaping the creative process, directing currents in contemporary culture, and redefining the meaning of design.

This year’s speakers, Rob Giampietro and Julia Hoffmann, are rising figures in the international design community. Their work spans a range of media, from print and interactive to exhibition and experience—-and their contributions extend into education, writing, editing and curating. Both are offering a unique perspective on design and its future.
