SDN-DK and CIID have the pleasure to present David Sherwin this Thursday at 5 p.m. at Copenhagen Institute of Interaction Design. The event is free of charge and professionals as well as students are welcome.

Design Is Hacking How We Learn

The next big disruption in lifelong learning will be by design. We are innately trained and poised to have a global impact on how other people can survive and thrive, whether they are designers or not.

In this talk, David Sherwin will point out opportunities for today’s designers to help create this change, sharing work his teams have done with the Girl Effect to empower girls living in extreme poverty and with Frog Design’s Collective Action Toolkit, which in its first year of release has been used worldwide by tens of thousands of non-designers in multiple languages.

David Sherwin is a creative director and interaction designer that has written multiple books that help people become better problem solvers and business thinkers, including Creative Workshop: 80 Challenges to Sharpen Your Design Skills and Success by Design: The Essential Business Reference for Designers. He is a an Interaction Design Director at frog, a global product strategy and design firm, and a Senior Lecturer at California College of the Arts in the BFA in Interaction Design program.

In his free time, he mentors designer-led startups for The Designer Fund, as well as speaks and teaches internationally at many conferences and design schools. He lives in Oakland, California, with his wife, the poet and writer Mary Paynter Sherwin.
