The long-lasting impact of design decisions

20 Years of Design

Celebrate the role of design

2019 marks our 20th Anniversary, so we’re kicking off the festivities at San Francisco Design Week! Join us in looking back at the past 20 years in design – and forward – in its ability to make a mark by defining new products, services, and experiences.

Panel discussion

We also want to open up a deep discussion about how have designers have made an effect on products and services they design, and what are the ethics and consequences of these designs?

  • What is the responsibility of a designer’s ideas and decisions, and how does it affect the end-users, companies, or communities far down the line?
  • How do you balance the business goals (bottom-line) vs. ethical decisions?
  • How to make sure designers don’t make bad designs or bad decisions, which will then affect a longer stream of data collection, privacy, environment, and sustainability and data science.

We’re looking forward to intruiguing conversations over some bubbly-filled glasses with you at our San Francisco studio. Come and join us!
