NEW YORK—October 6, 2011. What is the role of design in a rapidly shifting world? Next week hundreds of professional designers, educators and design students will gather to address this very question at the AIGA Design Conference, taking place in Phoenix from October 13–16. The theme of this year’s conference is “Pivot,” focusing on how design and designers are shifting to address changes in society, the economy and culture.
In thought-provoking sessions, a broad range of speakers will explore design’s potential. Speakers include:
Many more sessions are planned with a wide range of experts addressing the “Pivot” theme. See the full schedule online.
The AIGA Design Conference, offered every two years by AIGA, connects designers with people and ideas on the leading edge of the design profession, addressing the challenges and issues that matter most.
“Pivot is certainly an ambitious agenda, but these conversations are absolutely critical to the future of the communication design profession,” noted Richard Grefé, executive director of AIGA, the professional association for design. “Designers have the ability to change the world, but only if they fully understand the cultural, economic and societal shifts happening right now.”
