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."

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 SymposiumTheme Overview
Design SymposiumTheme Overview
The Symposium will address what the role of the designer
will be in the 21st Century and who will be the leaders?
How is the role of the designer changing?
 
What are the fundamental drivers that are stimulating
innovative and responsible change?
Design SymposiumTheme Overview
What do leading designers and visionaries need to know
in order to create a built environment for a rapidly
emerging, more inclusive and sustainable future society?
 How do these issues change the manner of our design
thinking, methodology, and curricular practice in the
emerging socio-economic dynamics of countries
like Brazil, China, India, or South Africa? 
Design SymposiumTheme Overview
Community Partnerships
The renowned economist-philosopher
and author of Small is Beautiful--E.F.
Schumacher--believed when he called for
a reassessment of the role and status of
design in society. Schumacher states:
“What is at stake is not economics, but
culture; not the standard of living, but the
quality of life”
In 1963 the late Selby Mvusi, a prolific Black
South African industrial designer, wrote:
“The truly excellent designed object is not the
object that is rare or expensive...This rightness of
form and function before and after the object is made
is both individual and social. It is in this sense of that
society and culture [form] intrinsic elements of
design.
We do not therefore design for society or for that
matter design in order to design society.We design
because society and ourselves are in fact design.
We do not design for living.
We design to live.”
Design SymposiumTheme Overview
What’s Next?
How do designers work with communities,
respond to constraints, and maximize ownership by
users and other stakeholders?
Promote exemplary projects with an emphasis on
participatory design, universal design, and social
responsibility.
Find ways to mobilize the resources to promote
the creation of job skills training, mentoring, and capital
recycling in low-income communities.
Conduct workshops and symposia that address
these issues... professional design and business
organizations could endorse the idea and act as an
executive advisory board for the planning and
development of such an event.

AbstractFutureMap:  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 South African 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-Saharan Africa 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.

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."  
  • 10. Design SymposiumTheme Overview Emerging Designing and The Future Society Professor Ricardo Gomes Department of Design and Industry San Francisco State University
  • 11. 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 SymposiumTheme Overview
  • 12. Design SymposiumTheme Overview The Symposium will address what the role of the designer will be in the 21st Century and who will be the leaders? How is the role of the designer changing?   What are the fundamental drivers that are stimulating innovative and responsible change?
  • 13. Design SymposiumTheme Overview What do leading designers and visionaries need to know in order to create a built environment for a rapidly emerging, more inclusive and sustainable future society?  How do these issues change the manner of our design thinking, methodology, and curricular practice in the emerging socio-economic dynamics of countries like Brazil, China, India, or South Africa? 
  • 14. Design SymposiumTheme Overview Community Partnerships The renowned economist-philosopher and author of Small is Beautiful--E.F. Schumacher--believed when he called for a reassessment of the role and status of design in society. Schumacher states: “What is at stake is not economics, but culture; not the standard of living, but the quality of life”
  • 15. In 1963 the late Selby Mvusi, a prolific Black South African industrial designer, wrote: “The truly excellent designed object is not the object that is rare or expensive...This rightness of form and function before and after the object is made is both individual and social. It is in this sense of that society and culture [form] intrinsic elements of design. We do not therefore design for society or for that matter design in order to design society.We design because society and ourselves are in fact design. We do not design for living. We design to live.” Design SymposiumTheme Overview
  • 16. What’s Next? How do designers work with communities, respond to constraints, and maximize ownership by users and other stakeholders? Promote exemplary projects with an emphasis on participatory design, universal design, and social responsibility. Find ways to mobilize the resources to promote the creation of job skills training, mentoring, and capital recycling in low-income communities. Conduct workshops and symposia that address these issues... professional design and business organizations could endorse the idea and act as an executive advisory board for the planning and development of such an event.

  • 18. AbstractFutureMap:  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 South African 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... Ami MehtaHewlett Packard, Emerging Markets Experience Architect
  • 19. Liz OgbuPublic 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-Saharan Africa as well as touch upon how we can look to develop a relevant praxis no matter where we are.
  • 20. 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.
  • 21. 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.
  • 22. 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.
  • 23. Design Symposium Panelist 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?
  • 24. 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 Panelist Questions:
  • 25. 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 Panelist Questions:
  • 26. 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?
