Everyone is a designer, modifying the world to try and get other people to change behaviors. So how do we make better design decisions? And especially, how do we help layman to understand the impact of their design snafus?
In this program, Robby Slaughter reviews a slideshow of hilarious, poignant, and powerful real-world examples of accidental design. Participants discuss how and why these choices were made, and how to assist the “accidental designers” in making smarter choices in the future.
Come join a highly interactive discussion of designs that were never meant to be! Register online.
