The Doctor of Design program is excited to present this milestone event. In welcoming our newest cohort of outstanding student-practitioners, we mark the fifth anniversary of the program and anticipate the 75th anniversary of the College of Design. The virtual DDes symposium begins with the big picture — Design Futures — and what that may mean for technology, business strategy, identity and research in design.

Gjoko Muratovski, noted thought leader in graphic design and design research, will open the symposium with a keynote address on the Future of Design Education in the Research University. The keynote will be followed by two foresighting panels: 

  • Professional Identity, Authenticity, and Ethics in Design.
  • How Design Organizations Meet the Future: Strategic Design Leadership.
