As host of this DesignMeets, we decided to add an extra layer of relevancy to the Thinkers theme:
The global population is now connected through ubiquitous, real-time and social computing, and through the use of and access to billions of devices. As designers, we must be aware of the fact that we are living through a period of time where everything is connected to everything — people, places and things. This connectedness is becoming imbedded in our culture and extended into brand and space, form and function. Design Connectedness is about an ecosystem of social and smart interactions. For better or for worse, should we consider connectedness as the essence of the things we design?
On November 3rd from 6-8pm, meet us at the Umbra Concept Store (at Queen and John) to reflect on a collection of quotes, tweets, and probes from speakers and attendees of this year’s DesignThinkers. It’s a chance to unwind and soak up the thoughts and ideas exchanged at DT12.
Guests who attend this event will receive a 25% discount at the Umbra store and will also have the opportunity to mingle with the Umbra designers.
