Take the Creative Lead

Building off the success of the District Design Conference presentations, IDSA is launching a new, monthly webinar series—Take the Creative Lead. Join us for three, high-quality and thought-provoking webinar sessions led by IDSA members.                                                                                                          


Ecodesign

Approaches to ecodesign and design for sustainability have been around but many designers are still uncertain about where to begin, and how far to go. Experts Philip White and Louise St. Pierre walked participants through phases of the design process that offer the largest opportunities for reducing environmental impacts. They demonstrated powerful tools and approaches from sources including Okala Practitioner. 


Design Voices

IDSA presents the Design Voices Webinar Series. Starting in March of 2015 IDSA has presented design experts with a voice. Each hour-long webinar offered an information-packed presentation followed by a moderated Q&A where attendees posed their own thought-provoking questions. 


Good Design = Good Business

In summer and fall 2014, IDSA presented experts from top firms who provided deep-dives into specific correlations between good design and business success including:

  • The influence of innovation on big name brands
  • How ID skills can bring entrepreneurial success
  • The convergence of UX, IX and mainstream ID in successful products
  • Creating hit products through direct connection of designer and end-user

Each hour-long webinar offered an information-packed presentation followed by a moderated Q&A where attendees posed their own thought-provoking questions.
