Design Forward SD | Welcome to Design Forward 2017
Design Forward Summit seeks to ignite conversation and action around how design thinking can improve the way we live, work and play – and provide designers and decision makers with the tools to affect real and lasting change. Our focus is not theory, it is practice

Human-centered design (HCD) has the power and potential to drive economy, industry, civic infrastructure, and quality of life.

The 2017 Design Forward Summit gave us a look into the future… We’ve now set our sights on Fall 2019 and a way to make Progress, By Design.

Entrepreneurs, technologists, product managers, designers, business and civic leaders are all welcome.
