Design with Intent – AIGA CO and WiD Partner Event

Sep. 10th 2020

*Don’t forget to log into your WiD account to view the member discount code below.

You need to be logged in to see this part of the content. Please Login to access.

AIGA Colorado & Women in Design Denver present Designing with Intent, a three-speaker panel online event focuses on our ability as humans and designers to adapt. This diverse selection of speakers will speak on recognizing exclusion, shifting toward including, and building your voice. As designers we have a responsibility not only to our clients, but also to people interacting with our designs. This broad audience requires us to expand our lens to recognize obstacles, diversity, and exclusion. Designing with intent means that we recognize and consider how we intentionally exclude, include, and design these interactions. It is how we intentionally design participation and mutual understanding across a diverse spectrum of culture, gender, identity, socioeconomic backgrounds, and additional variables that make up our humanity.

Topics Include:

1. Recognizing Exclusion: Understanding how our own bias gets in the way of the problems we are trying to address.

2. Prioritizing Inclusion: It is essential to engage with folks of all abilities, identities, and experiences throughout the design process

3. Establishing Your Voice: Tell your story and how your experiences have shaped the way you design with intent.

Breakout discussion groups will follow the presentations and panel discussion.

Register on EVENTBRITE

Event Schedule:

5:30 Introductions

5:45 Presentations and Panel Discussion

6:45 Breakout Discussion Rooms with Panelists

If you are interested in the topic but can’t attend, please register and a link to the recorded event will be sent to you.

About our Origami Instructor, Rachelle Vagy:
Rachelle is the Creative Director at Febrene, a graphic design studio based in Brooklyn, NY. Originally from Portland, she found origami to be relaxing and easy to teach while traveling overseas. She realized origami can be taught to anyone, even when you don’t speak the same language. She enjoys keeping her succulents alive and leaving origami figures around her neighborhood for strangers to find and enjoy. Find more of her designs at http://www.febrene.com/.

Artists have been deeply affected by the COVID-19 crisis and we would like to do our part to keep their creative work flowing so we can all experience the arts in the future. A suggested $5 donation is appreciated, however, WiD will be donating $5 to Artist Relief fund for every member that attends.
