Creatives Cover Identity

Please join AIGA West Michigan for a Design Week panel discussion with creatives from architecture, industrial design, and graphic design. We’ll kick things off with short (like really short—only 6 minutes) presentations on who each creative is and what they do. Then we’ll engage in a panel discussion which will include questions like how do creatives establish identity in design solutions and how do we meet the challenges of reaching (and truly understanding) the audience? Does the best approach involve ethnographic research, design thinking processes, or is empathy is enough? This group of creative areas will provide a lively and interesting conversation!

Whether you work in one of these areas or are interested just in learning more about them, please join us for this opportunity to connect and learn!
