Designers and design collaborators are constantly seeking to understand design’s influence on intimate spaces and systemic structures. So this year, we ask ourselves “what are the possible futures of design as both a cultural force and strategic advantage?”
This year, the AIGA Design Conference will convene—virtually—a global audience representative of our connected world. We’ll ask questions like:
- How big is the influence of design and designers on our world?
- How can we be the collaborators we want to be—now—to impact our future positively?
- How can I create a unique path for myself that speaks to my individuality and talent in a plurality of ways?
- How is new design research uncovering new historical narratives, helping us to re-examine our traditional conceptions about design’s past?
Our speakers will share their own experiences answering some of these questions, sparking your ideas and imagination about what your design future holds for you. Together, we’ll embark on a multi-layered exploration of design in our changing world.
