Designers today are called upon to use their creative talents and processes to conceive of – and design – new-to-the-world physical and digital products, services, spaces, and experiences. Instead of designing for how the world is now, we have to design for how things could be – a future that can be difficult to imagine because it doesn’t exist yet. What’s more, the things we design today must have the foresight to evolve along with rapid societal and technological advances.
On behalf of Chicago Design Week, IA Collaborative welcomes you to listen to a diverse panel comprised of academics, multidisciplinary designers, and civic and business leaders to discuss the challenges and opportunities inherent in designing for the future we want.
