Design Inspiration Across Altitudes

Take a tour of Point Loma Nazarene University’s new design facilities and hear a talk on their human-centered design program that embraces the four orders of design context—from crafting artifacts of beauty to designing for social systems. You’ll find out what inspires them, learn about their new Experience Design concentration, and how they prepare and train designers for a changing agile world, followed by a Q+A session. Prospective students, industry professionals, and the curious at heart are welcome!
