Decisions Based on an Inclusive
+
Sustainable Universal Criteria
Over thirty years ago the artist
Richard Hamilton wrote a book entitled,
Popular Culture and Personal Responsibility
in which he defined an ideal culture as,
“one in which awareness of its condition
is universal”
Good design can be achieved by focusing
the efforts of designers to develop products and
environments that will be
more inclusive,
as opposed to preferential, in enhancing and
facilitating the areas of urban community
development.
Design Symposium Questions:
Emerging Design:
1- Can design and designers be catalysts for social change in
emerging societies?
2- How can design, technology and innovation enhance the
"quality of life" in our emerging societies?
3- How do designers find comprehensive and life-improving
solutions to the impact of design in our emerging societies?
4- How do designers effectively integrate into design thinking and
execution process, the concerns for innovation, sustainability, and
authenticity into the quality of design?
Design Symposium Questions:
Emerging Design:
5- How does socio-cultural knowledge of our emerging markets
and societies influence the basis of your work, or what you
"package" for your clients and/or end-user?
6-What instruments, or strategies do you employ to address
the complexity and demand of an increasingly fragmented and
expanding global markets. Emerging markets that are being driven
by the cultural differences, functional and/or emotional expectations
of the consumer in our emerging societies?
Design Symposium Questions:
Images, CulturalTrends & Identity:
7- How are cultural values, influences and identity expressed,
or marketed in design strategy?
8- How do designers respond to specific needs and issues relative
to cultural identity?
9- How can the knowledge of socio-cultural differences and
economies of scale enhance the designers ability to be innovative
and responsible?
Design Symposium Questions:
The Future of Society:
10-What is the role of the designer in the 21st century,
and who will lead design in the 21st century?
11- Can individuals really make a difference? If so, how?

Eric Baily
Frog Design, Principle Designer
Eric Bailey is currently a Principal Designer in the San Francisco office of Frog
Design, a strategic-creative consulting firm with offices across the globe. His
mission is to envision and create engaging and meaningful experiences that
facilitate and improve the human condition. As a part of a multi-disciplinary
company, Eric has contributed to the development of digitally integrated solutions
for portable entertainment, health management, cardiovascular fitness, and
surveillance and access control. On a given day, he might be engaged in design
research, ideation, or interaction and visual design. Before joining Frog, Eric spent
7 years as Senior Designer at Arc World Wide (formerly Semaphore Partners).
His responsibilities there entailed visual design, interaction design and branding of
web-based business solutions for Fortune 500 companies.
Eric completed graduate work at Stanford’s Learning, Design and Technology

BS in Design from the University of Cincinnati. He completed 3 years of
professional work designing print, environmental and interactive solutions after
and during his undergraduate career.
Stephen Hooper
IDSA, DesignAfairs, President
Stephen Hooper is president of DesignAfairs USA, managing the US studios of what
has grown to be Europe's leading design agency. As president, he oversees
DesignAfairs award-winning teams with a focus on creating inspired new brand
identities and innovative products that achieve client goals and improve people's lives.
Industries range from consumer electronics and automotive interiors, to household
products and soft goods, to industrial equipment and medical devices. Before
DesignAfairs, Stephen was a design director with Siemens.
Stephen believes that inspiring teams with information about people's unspoken needs
and aspirations transforms the creative process. Innovation becomes more than just
new features and functions; it gains an emotive component. He advocates working
across client functional areas to share appropriate technical, socio-cultural, and
business knowledge as a means of generating new ideas and maintaining project
momentum -- an approach that results in appropriate solutions that fit a client's unique
situation while connecting with its customers on multiple levels.
Stephen's design work has been recognized with ten patents, as well as numerous
awards from BusinessWeek/IDEA, ID Magazine, GOOD Design, iF/Hannover, and other
industry organizations. He is a graduate of Western Washington University, where he
now serves on the board of directors of the design school. He is an invited speaker on
the design process, organizing corporate design teams for effectiveness, and inspiring
design by "ransacking your cultural basement."
Abstract
FutureMap: Planting the SeedsToday to Ensure the
Fruit-BearingTrees ofTomorrow
As we look to the future, we will see how dramatically different the world
looks from today. We see a more interdependent,
global workforce designing for a more global economy. The largest
consumer groups of tomorrow will be likely be Chinese,
Indian, Brazilian, Russian or SouthAfrican based on the population growth,
global demand patterns and demographics.
As we are all a witness to this shift, how might we as designers be prepared
for this new, global economy?
How will we participate in a collaborative, constructive and innovative
manner? I will begin to paint a picture of this future landscape and highlight
some ways in which we, as designers, can prepare for the journey into the
future...

Abstract
The Search for a Relevant Contemporary Design Praxis
The city is increasingly defined by a multiplicity of users who bring a growing
complexity to the social, economic, and political dynamics of the
contemporary urban environment. As a designer, I find this to be a fascinating
phenomenon because it shows that there are numerous urban conditions
around the world where people are creating or remaking urban spaces,
revealing new uses and potentialities to the very designers who have been
trained to shape the city. I believe that if architecture wishes to be relevant in
this evolving urbanism,it must confront, adapt, and adjust to these emerging
realities. I will present some projects and conclusions derived from my
research in sub-SaharanAfrica as well as touch upon how we can look to
develop a relevant praxis no matter where we are.
Joanne Oliver
IDEO, Sustainability Initiative Leader
Abstract
Sustainability Initiative Leader
The last 2 years have been filled with scientific predictions of a
changing world, environments in flux. Rising oil prices have forced
companies to re-evaluate their business models, question their energy
resources and produce new efficient technologies. If IDEO is an
indicator of change, as it so often is, then we are at the beginning of a
new era in design. Designers are the people who are going to channel
this new awareness and it wont just be through form, color, texture,
materials. It will be about having a thorough understanding of the life of
a product and how it can nurture and restore communities, and the
environment.
Eric Baily
Frog Design, Principle Designer
Abstract
Change Agent
How can technologies inspire human development and actualization?
In exploring how theories on learning, emotion and persuasion can
shape design methods, designers might give rise to products and
experiences that transcend pragmatism and unlock human potential.
The designer seeking to improve human experience should take into
account the relationships between perception, aspiration, motivation,
and visualization and their pivotal role in facilitating personal change.
Stephen Hooper
IDS, DesignAfairs, President
Abstract
Design As Process
As design's role matures and has a greater socio-cultural influence, we
start to see the effects within the business culture as well. business
schools are now incorporating design methodologies into their curriculum
with the goal of introducing business graduates to the idea of innovating
within their respective fields. We at DesignAfairs see more and more the
need to utilize our skill-sets as a enablers within these corporations to help
them achieve their goals of shorter time to market, differentiation from
their competitor, reduced development costs and most importantly, to
develop product solutions that resonate with their intended markets. In
addition, I will add a few slides to the front of this about DesignAfairs that
helps create the framework for discussion.

  • 16. Stephen Hooper IDSA, DesignAfairs, President Stephen Hooper is president of DesignAfairs USA, managing the US studios of what has grown to be Europe's leading design agency. As president, he oversees DesignAfairs award-winning teams with a focus on creating inspired new brand identities and innovative products that achieve client goals and improve people's lives. Industries range from consumer electronics and automotive interiors, to household products and soft goods, to industrial equipment and medical devices. Before DesignAfairs, Stephen was a design director with Siemens. Stephen believes that inspiring teams with information about people's unspoken needs and aspirations transforms the creative process. Innovation becomes more than just new features and functions; it gains an emotive component. He advocates working across client functional areas to share appropriate technical, socio-cultural, and business knowledge as a means of generating new ideas and maintaining project momentum -- an approach that results in appropriate solutions that fit a client's unique situation while connecting with its customers on multiple levels. Stephen's design work has been recognized with ten patents, as well as numerous awards from BusinessWeek/IDEA, ID Magazine, GOOD Design, iF/Hannover, and other industry organizations. He is a graduate of Western Washington University, where he now serves on the board of directors of the design school. He is an invited speaker on the design process, organizing corporate design teams for effectiveness, and inspiring design by "ransacking your cultural basement."
  • 17. Abstract FutureMap: Planting the SeedsToday to Ensure the Fruit-BearingTrees ofTomorrow As we look to the future, we will see how dramatically different the world looks from today. We see a more interdependent, global workforce designing for a more global economy. The largest consumer groups of tomorrow will be likely be Chinese, Indian, Brazilian, Russian or SouthAfrican based on the population growth, global demand patterns and demographics. As we are all a witness to this shift, how might we as designers be prepared for this new, global economy? How will we participate in a collaborative, constructive and innovative manner? I will begin to paint a picture of this future landscape and highlight some ways in which we, as designers, can prepare for the journey into the future...

  • 18. Liz Ogbu Public Architecture, Designer & Project Manager Abstract The Search for a Relevant Contemporary Design Praxis The city is increasingly defined by a multiplicity of users who bring a growing complexity to the social, economic, and political dynamics of the contemporary urban environment. As a designer, I find this to be a fascinating phenomenon because it shows that there are numerous urban conditions around the world where people are creating or remaking urban spaces, revealing new uses and potentialities to the very designers who have been trained to shape the city. I believe that if architecture wishes to be relevant in this evolving urbanism,it must confront, adapt, and adjust to these emerging realities. I will present some projects and conclusions derived from my research in sub-SaharanAfrica as well as touch upon how we can look to develop a relevant praxis no matter where we are.
  • 19. Joanne Oliver IDEO, Sustainability Initiative Leader Abstract Sustainability Initiative Leader The last 2 years have been filled with scientific predictions of a changing world, environments in flux. Rising oil prices have forced companies to re-evaluate their business models, question their energy resources and produce new efficient technologies. If IDEO is an indicator of change, as it so often is, then we are at the beginning of a new era in design. Designers are the people who are going to channel this new awareness and it wont just be through form, color, texture, materials. It will be about having a thorough understanding of the life of a product and how it can nurture and restore communities, and the environment.
  • 20. Eric Baily Frog Design, Principle Designer Abstract Change Agent How can technologies inspire human development and actualization? In exploring how theories on learning, emotion and persuasion can shape design methods, designers might give rise to products and experiences that transcend pragmatism and unlock human potential. The designer seeking to improve human experience should take into account the relationships between perception, aspiration, motivation, and visualization and their pivotal role in facilitating personal change.
  • 21. Stephen Hooper IDS, DesignAfairs, President Abstract Design As Process As design's role matures and has a greater socio-cultural influence, we start to see the effects within the business culture as well. business schools are now incorporating design methodologies into their curriculum with the goal of introducing business graduates to the idea of innovating within their respective fields. We at DesignAfairs see more and more the need to utilize our skill-sets as a enablers within these corporations to help them achieve their goals of shorter time to market, differentiation from their competitor, reduced development costs and most importantly, to develop product solutions that resonate with their intended markets. In addition, I will add a few slides to the front of this about DesignAfairs that helps create the framework for discussion.
