The Subversion of Cute and Designing Responsible Tech

Jul 18, 2019 @ 7 p.m. in San Francisco

Our next session of Designers + Geeks features two great speakers on very important topics. First, we'll have Jennifer Daniel talking about the power struggle that comes with the perception of cute in design. Jennifer will draw from her experiences as Creative Director of Google Emoji, an illustrator, and author of childrens' books for this talk.

Next, we have Kevin Web Page talking about our responsibilities as creators of design and technology. Kevin is a world-class thinker in this domain, and speaks on the topic all over the world.

We're excited to have both of these speakers at Designers + Geeks. As usual, we'll start the evening with food, drinks, and friends.
