About Design Intersections

Design Intersections is a series of presentations by designers and representatives from other disciplines regarding the consequences and potential for design-induced change.

  • Stimulate new ways of thinking about design and its application in any industry.
  • Inspire designers to see opportunities in a period of rapid, unpredictable transformation.
  • Learn how design can impact global issues including the environment, healthcare, the economy, communications, and culture.


Previously an annual half-day seminar focused on a single topic, Design Intersections is now a twice-annual morning program. The new format will allow attendees to explore the impact of design across a broader range of industries.
