The Wilson School of Design is pleased to present the inaugural “Design Futures” Speaker Series at KPU. Launching in January 2016, our international guest speakers are design innovators, researchers and practitioners who share the School’s vision of a collaborative and interdisciplinary future for the field of design. These industry experts will each present an engaging lecture, open to KPU students and faculty as well as to our local design industry community. They will also offer an in-depth, interactive workshop, available to all KPU Design students.
We believe design is the global medium that shares resources and seeks new connections to develop sustainable solutions. We look forward to bringing the insights of acclaimed international guests to our design community.
