Xlab 2014: Navigating the Future of Experience Design

NEW YORK (25 Sep 2014)  — For designers practicing in visual communication, the built environment, or consumer brands, the world is changing fast. New technology platforms, improved interfaces, and innovative content models create an evolving landscape of experience design.

SEGD’s Xlab 2014—happening November 6 at the SVA Theatre in New York—will bring together the top experiential design studios in the world to talk about how digital technology is transforming built environments and changing the way we connect with one another.

Full Immersion: Beyond the Page + Screen

ABSTRACT
This paper examines the potential for integrating Experiential Graphic Design (XGD) within the context of a traditional graphic design/visual communication curriculum. This shift will better prepare students to work in a constantly evolving, competitive, and expanding field of design. Through documented student projects, we explored the development of XGD strategies and methodologies through the blending of traditional graphic design foundations, interactive, and time-based media that transform a user experience beyond the page and screen. The success of this type of new curriculum model is made possible by the co-location of art, design, new media, and architecture in an interdisciplinary college.

Inclusive, High Quality Decisions? Macro/Micro Design Impacts within our Everyday Experiences

School of Design

ABSTRACT
Age and physical ability are natural filters for assessing the successes of designed objects, messages, and experiences. Design problem solving contributes (or not) to the resolution of challenges faced by aging and/or physically challenged individuals as they interact with products and contexts in the built environment. This paper examines some design details, solutions, and situations that impact everyday inclusivity and quality of experience, and suggests approaches toward understanding and increasing interaction success for all of us.

I work with clients to capture and clarify a unique and compelling story, and to voice it with authenticity, craft and power. I remain on projects from concept through completion.

Story can drive the architecture, interior design, content and entire experience of a physical space.
