Second Annual xDESIGN Conference at Harvard Saturday, February 1st 2014
(Cambridge, MA.) – The second annual By Design conference will be held on February 1, 2014 at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, co-organized by the GSD Design Thinking Student Group & the HBS Design Club.
This year’s conference will focus on the collaborative relationship between business leaders & creative directors. Participants will hear from industry leaders working in fashion, music, tech, media, design, and film speak on the process of innovation and implementation.
Attendees will get a behind-the-scenes look into the creative process from contributors to Vogue, Joseph-Gordon Levitt’s production company hitRECord, General Assembly, Finnish fashion and design house Marimekko, and Google Creative Lab, among others.
Through a series of presentations and panel discussions, participants will immerse themselves in conversations about how these leading professionals have pushed their companies internally, with both creative & business strategies to create visionary outcomes. They will learn from start-ups, small studios, and large companies about the working relationships behind a project’s success, the power of creativity and the process behind its influence.
The xDesign Conference is a collaborative effort between groups at the Harvard Graduate School of Design & the Harvard Business School. It aims to leverage expertise within the University by bringing together creative thinkers, design luminaries, professors, experts from various background, and students to engage, debate and reinterpret the design process for a selected subject. Each year the conference provides the opportunity to explore a new topic and new format responding to topical issues around the organizing student groups and the University at large.
