LOKI is excited to announce that Kevin will be presenting at the Design Thinkers Conference in Toronto on Oct. 24 as a member of the Design for Social Good panel alongside Jay Wall from Rally Rally and Dawn Hancock of Firebelly Design.
The panel promises to offer a deeper dive into a subject that is too often covered through shallow surfaces (in LOKI’s humble opinion) with the goal of provoking more critical debate on the designer’s social and political role. From Design Thinkers:
How can designers thoughtfully and ethically engage with social, environmental and political issues through design? How do you set up a project for success? What are the emerging trends in this field of design, and what are some critiques?
Kevin will also be leading an “intimate” roundtable discussion on the same topic on the 25th (registration required). For a backgrounder, please see our Design Against Design research and our Graphic Design as Symbolic Counterpower visual essay.
We’re very much looking forward to these conversations with our colleagues and to meet other socially-engaged designers. Hope to see you there!
