NEW YORK—October 2, 2013. As designers have become more involved in strategy and more engaged with social impact in recent years, the love of craft and exquisite execution remain the necessary elements of successful design. Next week nearly 2,000 designers will gather in Minneapolis to celebrate all three dimensions of design at “Head, Heart, Hand,” a biennial design conference hosted by AIGA, the professional association for design.
A broad range of speakers will explore the “Head, Heart, Hand” theme and how design strategy, craft and impact work together to create important outcomes. Speakers on the main stage include:
Dozens of other sessions are planned with a wide range of experts in design strategy, social impact and craft, addressing the “Head, Heart, Hand” theme and kicking off AIGA’s centennial year in 2014. Attendees will also be able to attend networking events and explore a Design Fair throughout the conference to discover the latest services and products from Adobe, Aquent and Shutterstock, among many others. See the full schedule and details about the event at designconference.aiga.org and on the “Head, Heart, Hand” app for iOS devices.
