Design Talks Double Feature
Celebrate Arts Month with a double dose of dynamic design talks, drinks, and small plates at Kinship Landing, a newly opened boutique hotel and public lobby in downtown Colorado Springs.
GROUP PROJECT: Crafting Creative Hospitality Together
The creative design teams behind Kinship Landing discuss what it takes to collaborate across disciplines to create a unique, design-forward hospitality experience—and live to tell the tale. They’ll spill all the design tea: the good, the challenging, and what it’s like opening a hotel in the middle of a global pandemic.
Panel Speakers: Ryan Lloyd (Echo Architecture), Courtney Wilson (Echo Architecture), Sara DeRose (FIXER), Troy DeRose (FIXER), Garrett Brown, Brook Mikulas (Kinship Landing)
Designing for Crisis: The Designer’s Share of the Problem
Amidst a global pandemic, designers of all stripes are forced to confront the world we’ve helped shape. We can marvel at how much progress has been made in a relatively short time to connect the world, while noticing the impacts of those changes on everyday life. Do designers deserve a share of the blame for consequences of design? If so, what can be done about it? In this talk, we’ll think aloud about how to reimagine the ways we create products, practices, systems and services.
Ron Bronson leads impactful initiatives at the intersection of technology, service design and public policy. He’s spent the past decade working in government, and currently serves as Director of Design at 18F. He’s based in Portland, Oregon.
