RECAP: Toledo Design Week “Call To Action”

A great first event and a stellar start to #ToledoDesignWeek. Call To Action is complete and we have two more free Toledo Design events on the way.  This Thursday at the beautiful The Toledo Museum of Art Glass Pavilion during Design Briefs we’re featuring three companies presenting their current projects as well as a problem they would like to overcome. Our panelists will then give their input, followed by breakout sessions where all attendees are invited to throw ideas into the hat and work towards finding insight and options for making progress on the issue presented. Not to mention, delicious (and free!) catering is provided by Balance Pan-Asian Grille. 21+ attendees may also enjoy a cash bar.

To recap Call To Action, Dan Klyn, renown information architect and co-founder of The Understanding Group, shared “What Good Means” in the context of digital design drawing upon lessons from the design of physical spaces. And Kate Hunt, experience designer and former director of Design for Good – AIGA West Michigan, shared insights about her experience helping the design community thrive in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Attendees enjoyed light snacks and some great insight into the process and procedure of mapping what Design for Good means in practice from two unique perspectives.

Thank you to Owens Center for Fine and Performing Arts for the use of their beautiful theater, and to all of our generous sponsors!
