This year’s Interactive Social 2.0 was bigger and better than ever! To everyone who joined us for the day: you rock, and we hope you had an amazing time. Our keynote speakers, Hans Neubert, Chief Creative Officer of frog design, and Michele Silvestri, EVP, Global Director of Design for WPP Team Detroit/Global Team Ford, blew us away with their insight, talent, passion and humor.
Hans’s presentation, “Never Sit Still,” talked about the past, present and future of user experience design, and the evolution of designers from “a crafty problem solver to a catalyst for systematic progress.” Michele’s talk, “Visual Storytelling: The Power of Design + Data,” inspired us to create designs that translate hard-to-digest data into compelling stories.
