    Elevate As the saying goes, “A rising tide lifts all boats.” Though originally attributed to economic well-being, the phrase can be applied to many things—including design. Our profession is fundamentally collaborative and we frequently work in teams—where pooling our knowledge yields the best results. The end goal, of course, is to mold ideas into tangible products and services that enable better lives and ignite imaginations. But in order to accomplish great things, we must continuously refine our craft. The IDSA South District Design Conference 2017 from April 7–8, 2017 at the University of Houston is your opportunity to do just that. It’s a celebration of creativity and ingenuity; a gathering of community; and a convergence of ideas. It’s a moment of introspection and reflection.

    DESIGN: HYBRID IDSA’s West District Design Conference 2017 DESIGN:HYBRID lands April 23–24 at the University of Oregon in Portland . HOW DO WE REACT IN TIME? In our current culture, we are required to be , do and know —more than ever before. We’re bombarded with information from one extreme to the other; from one media source to another. It’s CONFUSING! Yet, this is a time when we can create our own destiny and collaborate remotely with people from all around the globe. What we need are cool nerves, quick reflexes and a clear understanding of the enormity of the task at hand. It’s a demanding, fast-paced enterprise—not for the faint of heart. However, the rewards of success can be great indeed!

    Radical Concepts Whether you’re looking to elevate your thinking or your business model, a radical new concept or two may be needed to revitalize!
