Designing Shanghai 2013 will be taking place on Saturday 6th of July and will focus on Human-centered design through talks, research and prototyping.
We are excited to bring you Designing Shanghai 2013 on Saturday, 6th July. Come immerse yourself in Human Centered Design through informative talks, and a city-wide research and rapid prototyping exercise, that explores solutions across digital, physical, and service design.
At Designing Shanghai 2012: Social Inclusion, teams tackled challenges such as improving disabled access, elderly care and special educational needs. This year, join us as we explore the theme of ‘Designing for Disaster’, and help prepare Shanghai for the next zombie apocalypse…
Designers from Frog, IDEO and more will open the day with a series of talks. They will share their insight, approach and methodology.
In the afternoon, participants form teams, choose a design challenge, and take to the streets of Shanghai to research the problem. On return to the venue, teams will synthesize their research, brainstorm solutions, and create rapid prototypes to share with the rest of the group.
The event is free to attend, and everyone is welcome – designers, researchers, entrepreneurs, developers, marketers, artists, consultants, students, and more. Our only pre-requisite is that you have a passion for rediscovering the world around you.
