Society of Design Conference presented by Go Welsh
A one-day, multidisciplinary design event featuring leading creatives who shape culture around the world. Inspiring, motivating, and spellbinding presentations that will very likely SHIFT the way you think about design.
Nine speakers will take the stage in the Harrison Auditorium on the campus of the University of Pennsylvania to share compelling and thought-provoking case studies from a wide range of design disciplines. Four of the featured speakers are visiting from Europe which helps to make the dayâ€™s presentations even more of a unique opportunity.
Nick Asbury (England) has been described by Creative Review magazine as â€˜the designerâ€™s writer,â€™ Annie Atkins (Ireland) has designed graphics for two Oscar-nominated films, the animated feature The Boxtrolls and Wes Andersonâ€™s Grand Budapest Hotel (Academy Award for Best Production Design), and Oskar Zietaâ€™s (Poland) efforts in industrial design are permanently exhibited, among others, in Centre Pompidou in Paris.
The featured speakers from the U.S. include lettering superstars Spencer Charles and Kelly Thorn, internationally-awarded architect Craig Dykers from SnÃ¸hetta, interaction and media designer John Ryan from Local Projects, and multi-talented Alisa Wolfson, Head of Design at Leo Burnett, Chicago. A lineup to rival any of the worldâ€™s best design conferences. This is the canâ€™t-miss design event of the year in Philadelphia.
