Humantific CoFounder GK VanPatter will be keynote speaker on Day 1 of Centro Universitario de la Costa’s 6th Design Forum in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico on June 13-15.
The Forum objectives include "Understanding the relationship between the design processes that are taught in the classroom and the design processes that are applied in the professional field.”
GK will be presenting excerpts for our upcoming book in progress Rethinking Design Thinking: Making Sense of the Future that Has Already Arrived.
How are the challenges facing design changing and what are our responsibilities in the age of urgency and complexity rising? It's a bit of a mindbender story that could use some sensemaking. :-) Coming soon!
