Future By Design: The Future of Identity Design

September 24, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 8:30 pm


RGD, in collaboration with the Gladstone Hotel, presents The Future of Identity Design a panel discussion on how the process of creating visual identities is changing.

Augmented reality, responsive design, considering brands in both time and space – these are just some of the new realities affecting visual identities. In the future we can expect stronger efforts to create more interactive experiences and ultimately more personal forms of expression. Join our expert panel as they discuss new trends and technologies in the development of visual identities and share individual case studies highlighting the new landscape of identity design.

This edition of Future by Design features new interactive elements, as well as for the first time international panelists streamed virtually.

Identity Design is the seventh in RGD’s ongoing Future by Design series of panel discussions. These panels are broadcast live via webcast to reach across all parts of the country. Contact to find out how to participate.
