When we think about design, we tend to think first about how it impacts our visual sense, but there are countless examples of how design engages the rest of our faculties. Chefs & food stylists are concerned with taste as well as visual impact, exhibition & environmental designers have to factor in how space might smell, sound designers are changing the way we hear the world through technology, & industrial designers must create satisfyingly tactile products.
The smell of a new book or the noise of an electric car matters, & it's really when all the senses come together that we form the most compelling user experience. Anything we can perceive is an opportunity for design, & designers are advancing the art on all of these fronts. Please join us for a multi-disciplinary panel discussion about designing beyond the visual.
About the Designing Produces Series
Join AIGA San Francisco & a panel of leading product designers in the Bay Area to discuss how the digital design field has evolved into a holistic product discipline. Products bring together a variety of designers to create something people can see, touch & use. Whether you're an industrial designer, user experience designer, interaction designer, graphic designer, illustrator or user researcher, if you're working on a product or product team, you're a Product Designer. This series breaks down the silos of design disciplines & celebrates the evolution of product design as a multi-disciplinary field.
Who Should Attend
The Designing Products series is geared towards designers who are already practicing within the space & have experience in the field but are looking to gain more insights & meet like-minded people.
