In this past November’s election, a record number of Latinos cast ballots for president, constituting the leading edge of an ascendant ethnic voting bloc that is likely to double in size within a generation. Currently, the nation’s 53 million Hispanics comprise 17% of the total U.S. population. Few of us are ignorant of this transformation, but these numbers tell a compelling story. This is not a trend; it is the new reality. 

How will the Latino influence affect American identity?  In what ways will the emergent and expanding Latino community direct the trends, tastes and preferences of the US majority? NYDesigns and The Division of Continuing Education at the School of Visual Arts invite you to join our panel of political scientists, journalists and futurists to imagine and predict what the future of design, marketing, advertising and consumer-responsive products and services will look like when Latinos represent half or more of America.

Speakers include:

Sem Devillart, trend forecaster
Ed Morales, journalist
Antonio Vazquez-Arroyo, political scientist

Moderated by: Nando Rodriguez and Nepal Asatthawasi.


Presented through ¿Hablas Diseño? at The School of Visual Arts
