Design Transitions Book Launch @ Hôtel Droog
Friday, November 29, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 7:30 PM (PST)
Join us for a conversation over a glass of wine on how design is changing with Joyce Yee and Emma Jefferies, authors of Design Transitions.
Listen and exchange with Joyce and Emma as they share insights into the four transitions happening within design today.
The Design Transitions book captures 42 stories of how the world of design is changing across the world. Twelve countries are represented from the perspectives of three different communities. We are fortunate to be joined by Droog, Zilver Innovation, DesignThinkers Group and Minas Gerais local government (featured in the book) as they share their inspirational stories about their changing practices.
