As part of San Francisco Design Week, Creativity Explored and The New Company invite you to join us for a unique panel discussion about inspirational role of CE art and the design process. This past year, The New Company created a brand identity for Art Changes Lives 2019 inspired by artwork featured at the event.

Description:
San Francisco has a legacy of embracing the weird and unexpected, especially when it comes to art and design. From the hippie movement to the vibrant history of public and outsider art, SF is often synonymous with the experimental and eccentric. Join us as we discuss and explore the inspirational process of working with the unknown.

Motivated by the growing partnership between Creativity Explored and The New Company, the event will examine how art produced by artists with developmental disabilities inspires the design and creative process.

From exploring non-traditional art as a source for creative ideation to incorporating CE art in branding, identity, and product design, the discussion will present our shared perspective on welcoming the unconventional as a means of pushing the global aesthetic forward.

Panelists:
Ann Kappes (Director of Licensing, Creativity Explored)
Matt Luckhurst (Founder & Executive Creative Director, The New Company)
Will Geddes (Design Director, The New Company)

Moderator:
Tiffani Jones Brown (Editorial Director, Dropbox)


Tickets: $10 each
Available via Eventbrite here


 


About SF Design Week:
SFDW is an essential week-long city-wide festival that showcases the unique intersection of ideas, design, business & entrepreneurism that makes the Bay Area the birthplace of the future.

Now a global phenomenon, San Francisco’s international success is born from a historically free-spirited entrepreneurialism, coupled with the imaginative vision of contemporary design and state-of-the-art technology. Pioneers of new ways of looking at the world, nimble Bay Area start-ups are now among the world’s most influential design-led companies, producing products, services and experiences that profoundly influence the daily lives of billions of people globally.

Through studio tours and events, SFDW celebrates this spirit of newness by providing unique access to exhibitions and conversations with the designers who are shaping the future — from architecture to fashion, product design to digital services, and everything in between.
