RGD Webcast: Future By Design: The Evolving Visual Landscape

RGD Webcast: Future By Design: The Evolving Visual Landscape
January 29, 2013
6:30 - 8:30 PM
Sault College, Room M1030
Sault Ste. Marie, ON

RGD Ontario, in collaboration with the Gladstone Hotel, presents The Evolving Visual Landscape a panel discussion on the changing effect of visual communications to our public spaces.

From google glasses to programmable t-shirts to the ubiquity of street art, what we see around us is becoming ever more commercial and customizable. But what do we see, in a world where we are bombarded by "outdoor advertising" and yet rarely look up from our smartphones to see it? This panel explores the changing nature of communication and advertising in our public spaces. Join us as we discuss what's on the cutting edge of our new visual landscape and how design is changing not just what's on paper or on the web, but how we interact with the world itself. 

In addition to the discussion, each panelist presents a brief case study with visuals that highlights these changes and demonstrates how designers are responding to them. 

Join us for a special screening of this discussion as it is broadcast LIVE.

Panelists Include:
