CCS Summit Promises the Leading Edge in Interaction Design

CCS Summit Promises the Leading Edge in Interaction Design

Technology is now an integral aspect of our daily lives, imbedded in a broad range of products from our phones and tablets to our televisions and toasters to manufacturing equipment and automobiles. Designers who can provide effective solutions, with an eye toward the future, are in increasingly high demand.

On April 14, 2014 at the A. Alfred Taubman Center for Design Education, the College for Creative Studies will bring together some of today’s most innovative minds in experience design to explore the future of human-technology interaction.

“CCS Summit: Designing Interactive Experiences that Delight and Engage,” a conference for students, faculty and Detroit’s creative community, promises a full day of presentations and real-time interactions examining the possibilities for this rapidly expanding field focused on the human context of design—how people use, need and respond to technology in their daily lives.

The CCS Summit will give the College community and other design-forward creatives the opportunity to see what’s next in interaction design, the focus of a new master’s program launching at CCS in fall 2014.

Presentations and interactions by:

  • Tesa Aragones, Senior Global Director, Nike+ Experience Design - Digital Sport at Nike
  • Lawrence Burns, Professor of Engineering Practice, University of Michigan
  • Sheryl Connelly, Global Trends and Futuring, Ford Motor Company
  • Joanne Healy, Dean of Graduate Studies, CCS
  • Mike Jbara, President of ADA, Warner Music Group
  • Jeff Voris, Director of Connected Experiences, Walt Disney Imagineering
  • Roland Yu, Co-Founder, yU+co.[lab]
