SEGD NYC held it's latest Small Talks. Big Ideas. event at Smart Design on Thursday, March 26, 2015. Kamdyn Moore, Senior Program Manager, Sarah Pharas, Associate Director Interaction Design and Jess Vande Werken, Brand Communication Designer of Smart Design hosted the event.

The evening started with a tour of Smart's office followed by a presentation by Kamdyn, Sarah, and Jess. The trio presented a number of recent projects and discussed how Smart Design works across both the physical and digital, to design meaningful products, services, and experiences that have an enduring impact on organizations and people.  We would like to thank Kamdyn, Sarah and Jess again for their time and an inspiring presentation of Smart Design's work.
