I’ve been putting together the September Films & Conversations for a while now and it’s a special one.
This month, I’m partnering with Il Kino to present a screening of Design Disruptors which will be followed by a unique panel discussion.
In recent years, we’ve seen design play a crucial role in ushering a new era products and services. And with this elevated status, designers are faced with profound responsibilities in their ability to influence the lives of people in the far reaches of the world.
This film presents an opportunity to have a dialogue about the roles designers play in all our lives, so please join me for a great evening of film and conversation.
The future of business is being written by companies and products that—intentionally or not—shake billion dollar industries. In Design Disruptors, enter the world of 15+ industry-toppling companies—valued at more than $1 trillion dollars combined—with one unifying secret advantage: the transformative power of design.
Design Disruptors reveals a never-before-seen perspective on the design approaches of these companies and how they are overtaking billion dollar industries through design.
