Design and Change: 2018 Drexel Design Research Symposium

Friday, October 12, 2018

8:00 AM-5:30 PM

How does design create change in health, living, technology, and manufacturing? What are the leading edge models of thought around creating change through design? Today, artists and designers are pursuing work and creative expression that pushes the boundaries of traditional disciplines requiring interdisciplinary collaborations, the mastery of new technologies, and intensive research to unearth new solutions to practical and aesthetic problems. Join the Westphal College of Media Arts & Design for a symposium that examines the process of change and design through research posters, visiting experts, discussions.

Drexel’s Westphal College is a leading design and applied art school, ranked the fifth best applied art and design school in the nation by College Factual and with top ranked programs in Fashion Design, Interior Design and Architecture, Digital Media, and Product Design. The Westphal College Master’s program in Design Research draws upon the strengths of an outstanding faculty, superb facilities, and an extensive ongoing research portfolio. The Westphal College invites you to learn more about Design Research at the Design and Change: 2018 Drexel Design Research Symposium on Friday, October 12. The symposium is free and open to the public and is presented as part of this year’s Design Philadelphia Festival.
