As design has moved to fully digital over the last two decades, a new generation of designers in the tech industry are using code and data to serve an expanded set of user needs. These designers are utilizing new advancements in tools and platforms to take classical design into this new century with computational thinking. Three leading practitioners of computational design at Automattic — Allan Cole, Ashleigh Axios, Jack Lenox — will share their individual approaches to working deeply in code, impacting millions of people online, and advancing the performance of user experiences online. Introduction for this event will be by John Maeda.
This event precedes the Learning Innovation Conversations evening event with John Maeda, which beings at 6pm in Mitchell Auditorium. Participants are welcome to register for that event as well.
