Event Description

The second annual By Design conference will focus on the collaborative relationship between business leaders & creative directors. Hear from industry leaders working in fashion, tech, media, design, and film speak on the process of innovation and implementation. Immerse yourself in conversations about how these leading professionals have pushed their companies internally, with both creative and business strategies to create visionary outcomes. Learn from start-ups, small studios, and large companies about the working relationships fundamental to a project's success, the power of creativity, and the process behind its influence. 

Come get behind-the-scenes perspectives from contributors to Vogue, Joseph-Gordon Levitt's production company hitRECord, General Assembly, Finnish fashion and design house Marimekko, and Google Creative Lab, among others.

The xDesign Conference is a collaborative effort between groups at the Harvard Graduate School of Design & the Harvard Business School.
