Today, the profession of Design enjoys media coverage and public awareness unimagined only twenty years ago. While this coverage tends to focus on explicit design philosophies and techniques, little attention is paid to the effect that management has had on the practice and product of Design. Our presenter, Stephen Megargee, will look at some creative approaches and methods that managers can adopt, in order to address the distinguishing characteristics of designers.Steve Megargee stumbled haphazardly into his career and was soon designing graphics for Swatch Watch, Michael Jackson, Metallica and Pink Floyd, to name only a few of many pop artists. Too soon after learning how to write HTML code, he was swept up in the dot-com boom when recruited by CDnow, as a creative director. Now Steve is currently the managing director of Aquent Studios, where he leads a large team that meets design and project management needs at Merck Pharmaceuticals.
