Design Futures & Foresighting

5th Annual Doctor of Design Symposium on Design Research

5th Annual Doctor of Design Symposium on Design Research

Friday, August 19, 2022: 8:45 am – 1:50 pm, virtual

The Doctor of Design (DDes) program is excited to present this milestone event. In welcoming our newest Cohort of outstanding student-practitioners, we mark the fifth anniversary of the program and anticipate the 75th anniversary of the College of Design. The virtual DDes Symposium begins with the big picture—Design Futures—and what that may mean for technology, business strategy, identity, and research in design.

Gjoko Muratovski, noted thought leader in graphic design and design research, will open the Symposium with a keynote address on the Future of Design Education in the Research University. The Keynote will be followed by two foresighting panels: 

  • I. Professional Identity, Authenticity, and Ethics in Design, and
  • II. How Design Organizations Meet the Future: Strategic Design Leadership.

Who Should Attend?

We encourage our traditional design partners and anyone interested in the future of design to attend this transdisciplinary event, including graduate students, faculty, design practitioners, and business professionals. CEUs are available for architects and landscape architects on request.
