Design as a professional discipline has undergone a tremendous evolution in the last generation. It has transformed from a practice focused mainly on aesthetic style to one with a clear and explicit focus on users and their hopes, desires, challenges, and needs. By establishing empathy and curiosity with the user, designers can work toward outcomes that meet those needs more successfully.

In this talk, designer, artist, and educator MiHyun Kim (Texas State University) will consider the importance of human-centered projects and co-creation to innovative design solutions. She will explain how this approach can address complex social issues and be applied to a broad range of disciplines, such as Interaction Design, Brand Design, Service Design, and even Landscape Design. Sherry Freyermuth, Assistant Professor of Studio Art/Graphic Design at Clark University will facilitate.

This event will be broadcast live on Zoom. Participation is free and open to the public. Registration is not required.
