IDSA West District Design Conference 2018

Register now for the IDSA West District Design Conference 2018: People, Process, Possibilities, set for April 67 at the University of Oregon-Portland.

Some of the most successful designers today are skillful masters who have both unique specialties as well as a broad understanding of creativity mixed with business acumen. People, Process, Possibilities will paint a holistic picture of the current design landscape and leave participants with tools and methodologies they can take with them into their own practice.

  • People: Building your personal skill set will be a continuous career pursuit. Learning and progressing your ability to deliver design solutions which accurately respond to real-world problems will ensure your place at the table.
  • Process: As new tools and strategies emerge, you’ll need to absorb and adapt them into your approach in order to translate rough concepts into successful designs.
  • Possibilities: Envisioning what’s next is a skill itself, but keeping aware of developing technologies and trends will allow you to prepare for changes ahead instead of reacting to them after it’s too late.

Designers function best when their skills and abilities mesh with cutting edge design processes and current tools. Envisioning the future and creating innovative products becomes more possible when people, process and possibilities align. In addition to presentations from top designers—People, Process, Possibilities will feature portfolio reviews, ample networking opportunities and the inspirational backdrop needed to take your career to the next level.
