Description

Join AIGA Boston during HUBweek to explore the future being built in Boston at the intersections of art, science, and technology.

Over the past several years, discussion of the range and value of design has been a constant denominator in design and business circles. Is design now less about art making and more about the art of problem solving?

In acknowledgment of changing skillsets and responsibilities of designers, AIGA Boston presents ‘The Changing Boston Designscape.’ We are casting a wide net to capture a representative sample of design through the eyes of human-centered design practitioners in the greater Boston area.

4 design leaders will present short-form overviews of their experiences that represent design triumphs small and large. In this way, our panel will highlight design-thinking as a conduit to positively affect our lives, businesses and local economy.

Lesley Mottla
, SVP Product, Customer Experience & Engineering at M. Gemi
