Event Description

Most product design projects focus on what we can reasonably create in the near-term with the constraints of present-day technologies. But how do our tools and methods change when we’re designing for ten to twenty years into the future? Let us show you how to stop reacting to the latest "big thing" and start being the one that people catch up to.

In this new workshop, you’ll learn to gain a better understanding of where technology is headed, and brainstorm what might inspire your future customers. Topics include:

  • How to strategically approach product design with a future focus
  • Comparing future visions from yesterday and today to outline upcoming trends
  • Tools, insights and technologies for designing products to inspire users
  • Selling a future product vision to investors or stakeholders

Who should attend

Fans of futurism and futuristic design, designers working with next-gen technologies, risk managers looking for strategic techniques, and leaders wanting to inspire their teams to be future-focused

Who's teaching? 

Learn from Sci-fi and Design-thinker Chris Noessel. In addition to becoming Cooper's first Design Fellow, Chris has written the book on the intersection of sci-fi, design, and futuristic technologies. 

Join us for 2 days of thinking beyond the day-to-day and on to what's coming next.
