Design Thinking USA

Where design leaders connect

Whether you work in experience design, innovation, human factors engineering or evangelizing design thinking in your organization, Design Thinking USA 2019 hosted in Austin is bringing a wide network of design doers and thought leaders together.

The event gathers senior executives together to share stories about how to gain competitive advantage through human-centered design.

In this year’s Design Thinking USA, you will hear from speakers such as SVP and Chief Design Officer at PepsiCo, Chief Design Officer at Dick’s Sporting Goods, VP of Commerce UX at Google, Chief Design Officer at USAA, and many others.

Invent with Idean

Over the past 20 years, we’ve learned a few things about designing products, services, and customer experiences that people love.

We created a book about re-inventing the way you think, work, and make. Building on the design practices we use every day at Idean, the series provides practical, fresh guidance on how to be more human-centred and create better outcomes for both your business and customers. Hard copies of the Design Thinking Book will be shared at the Design Thinking Conference!
