About This Event

Overview: This inspiring panel event series invites key players in New York’s design community to offer a rare insider’s look at how they work and create. From branding to user experience to city planning, panelists will discuss how they approach projects from a design point of view, how design thinking methods help with problem-solving, and much more. Plus, they’ll cover opportunities within the field and their vision for the future of the industry.

THIS MONTH: Design DNA -- Designing Experiences for a Better Future

For all the pure goodness that came with the advent of the internet, there came equal amounts of bad, tragic and fully terrifying. The same invention that enabled crowd funding for refugees and blind kitties brought systemic bullying and persistent trolls.

The internet is an open place--some sites cultivate positivity while others do just the opposite. How do design decisions affect these outcomes and more importantly, how can we contribute to a bright internet future for generations to come?

What You'll Take Away:

  • How the DNA of digital platforms are creating dark UX patterns
  • How can design encourage positive culture vs negative culture i.e. Reddit vs4chan
  • How might we change the success metrics of a product to create more value
  • How can we design (news) without simply reinforcing pre-existing perceptions
  • Anticipating the good, bad, and ugly with product use

Why It's Important: As the internet grows to encompass education, entertainment and social interactions the implications of designing accessible and inclusive communities online will have an impact that reaches beyond the screen.
