Chapter 13: 'Design for People' Panel & Launch Event

Wednesday, February 24 at 6:30PM, the AIGA/NY presents a Parsons Lecture Series panel with design world luminaries Chappell Ellison, Karrie Jacobs, Bryn Smith and Scott Stowell, proprietor of Open, in celebration of the new book from Metropolis. Book signing to follow!

Chapter 13: 'Design for People' Panel & Launch Event

Design for People is a book with 12 chapters about design projects by Scott Stowell’s design studio Open, told in the words of people who made them and people who used them. Chapter 13 is a discussion about Design for People itself, told in the words of people who made it and people who’ve read it.

Chapter 13: 'Design for People' Panel & Launch Event

For instance, you may hear about all the times Scott had to cajole people to go on the record; the day an intern rifled through a client’s old email, only to find out that client once wanted to fire Open; or when (and why) the book had to be 1.8519% smaller than it was supposed to be.

Chapter 13: 'Design for People' Panel & Launch Event

Join Metropolis for a unique event about a unique project–and learn how mistakes can be opportunities, what it’s like to interview 200 people, and why most design books (besides this one, anyway) are kind of the same. You can order your own copy of Design for People with your ticket–or buy it at this event.
