Speaker Series presented by The Wilson School of Design at KPU

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.

Jorge Furuya – User Experience Designer, Google CA

User Experience Design: Process, Random Sketches and the Value of Framing

The world of interactive and connected experiences is an exciting place to be. Things that years ago seemed to belong exclusively in the realm of science fiction feel everyday more like the next holiday season’s best selling gadget or the up-and-coming cloud service.

Jorge Foruya will share his thoughts on how the designer’s process itself is a tool that is constantly being tuned and how deeply the experience of designing products relates and enriches the experience that the final product will enable for the user.

Jorge Fuyura is a user experience/interaction designer with a background in industrial design and ethnographic inspired research. During the last 7 years he has been working in the mobile communications/computing industry both at Sony Mobile, HTC. He currently leads design in an Android team at Google.
