Conferences

Design Undergrads Attend Designation Conference

This past April, nine undergrads from Carnegie Mellon University's School of Design were invited to participate in the 2018 Designation Conference at Spring Studios in New York City. The Designation Conference is an all-expenses-paid exploration of the versatility of a career in design, how design is applied differently across industries, and what it looks like to be a design leader facing the business and social challenges of our world.

Imagining Futures

Stuart Candy Unleashes “The Thing From the Future” at SXSW

The School of Design's Stuart Candy took his card game, "The Thing From the Future," to South by Southwest this spring to help teach mayors from around the country to think like futurists. "The Thing From The Future" is an award-winning imagination game and tool for envisioning alternative tomorrows. It is published by the Situation Lab, a collaboration between Candy and Jeff Watson, a professor in the School of Cinematic Arts at the University of Southern California.

Words in Motion is a project that explores making visual the spoken or written word. The words on screen provide an interpretation of how words are spoken (their pacing, emphasis, volume) in a given setting or how written words may sound if read out loud. These dynamic "performances" are closer to stage and film performances than to static words on a page of text, and are a personal interpretation by an individual student. This example is from Joshua Eiten in 2015, when he took the course, Time, Motion & Communication.
