Design for the Future: Creating on the Cutting Edge

Join Stanley Lai at Creative Pulse on Thursday, Apr 25th

What are the tools and mindsets used by professionals that work with emerging technology?

As Director of Experience Design at Domain7, Stanley Lai works in the middle of a rapidly evolving tech environment. But despite leading a design team that serves a global set of partners, Stanley has struggled with understanding the potential direction and implications of emerging technology. He came to realize that Design Thinking had striking limitations for creatives on the cutting edge.

This motivated him to pursue alternate methods that are better suited for working in emerging spaces and technology.

On April 25, Stanley will share those design methods with us.

Designers, developers, and industry leaders can attend this Talk + Social to discover:

  1. A framework for considering the future that helps to maximize the impact of our work.
  2. How to stop relying strictly on conventional techniques — and start combining the right tools and mindset for the problem.
  3. How to blend Futures Thinking into Design Thinking to uncover exciting new opportunities.

Join us at Elevator Strategy for tasty beverages and pizza — and discover how to design for the future.
