ASID reveals programming for inaugural Outcome of Design Conference
The American Society of Interior Designers (ASID) has announced its first-ever Outcome of Design Conference, created in partnership with Herman Miller and NeoCon. Created as a complement to the Society’s new Outcome of Design Awards, the Conference seeks to offer programming, resources, and networking to bolster the power and profession of design through an in-depth focus on the impact of design on the human experience. The conference will be held at the Mart in Chicago, March 21-22, 2019.
In addition to the announcement of the Outcome of Design Award winners, the Outcome of Design Conference will host a robust slate of programming and speakers. Doreen Lorenzo, M.A, assistant dean of the School of Design and Creative Technologies and clinical professor of Design and Future, director of the Center for Integrated Design, University of Texas-Austin, will offer the keynote, “Preparing Future Generations to Influence Corporate Culture.” The Conference will continue with modules on technology, professional practice, and design education. The event will conclude with sessions dedicated to the Outcome of Design Award finalists and will take a deep dive into each of their projects’ case studies and examine their unique successes.
Notes Randy Fiser, Hon. FASID, CEO, ASID, “Projects that measure the outcome of design on the human experience through sustainable, human-centric, and socially responsible design solutions represent the core values of our profession. We’re thrilled to celebrate the designers and clients that exemplify this philosophy and explore a range of programming that helps spread the word. We’re confident that the Outcome of Design Conference will become a key event for designers everywhere looking to make a difference and an impact with their work.”
“The power that research has to enhance the design profession is undeniable,” adds Susan Chung, Ph.D., director, ASID Research & Knowledge Management. “The rich programming at the Outcome of Design Conference will highlight this by showcasing the tangible impact of design, and it will help designers better understand how to apply it to their own practices.”
