Pushing the Boundaries with Nik Hafermaas

Creative risk-taking in Media, Technology, and Space

When he’s not running the graphic design department at Art Center College of Design, Nik Hafermaas is creating new ways to combine digital interactive media, high-tech materials, and architecture through his studio Ueberall. He says there is no better place for innovation—and risk-taking—than XGD. And he’ll prove it by debuting eFLOW, his prototype E Ink installation at the 2015 SEGD Conference June 4-6!

Get the Most Out of Your Conference Experience

Students + Young Designers | Pre-Conference Checklist:

Investigate the area. Spend a couple minutes of quality time with google maps and explore the local dining options, places to pick up necessities and points of interest.

Review your schedule. Take a look at the agenda again, and see what tours and events you’ve signed up for. Decide what sessions you definitely do not want to miss, and which ones you are low priority for you.

A group of Portland designers (including former SEGD staffer Sara Naegelin) collaborated to investigate the state of design thinking, and have identified five broad themes that illustrate its universal benefits.

John Maeda gives a good justification for why design's value keeps growing in our increasingly technical world. User Experience counts for more than CPU speed or number of pixels and makes that case that the inflection point was mobile. It's all about experience!
