Future By Design: Information & Design
Tuesday, May 28, 2013 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (EDT)
6:00 PM - 8:30 PM
(discussion begins at 6:30PM)
1214 Queen St. West
RGD, in collaboration with the Gladstone Hotel, presents Information and Design a panel discussion on the ways design is both enabled by and shapes information.
We are living in a world where information is increasingly modular, consumable, connectable, and mixable. Amidst all of this dynamic communication, too often what we call ‘information’ is actually just noise. How then can design help transform noise, data and other information into a form where it better informs?
Join our expert panel as they discuss the ways in which information and design are increasingly integrated and explore the exciting possibilities for information design in the future.
In addition to the discussion, each panelist presents a brief case study with visuals that highlights this relationship and demonstrates how designers are responding.
Information & Design is the sixth in RGD's ongoing Future by Design series of panel discussions. These panels are broadcast live via webcast to reach across all parts of the country. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org to find out how to participate.
Join us for a special screening of this discussion as it is broadcast LIVE.
