Have you ever used a product that was so poorly designed that you couldn't believe it was made for humans? On the contrary, have you ever recommended a product because of how easy it is to use or how life changing it is? Do you ever wonder how companies like Amazon, Bose, Microsoft or Google build teams of innovators ready to make products that change the world while others fail? In this webinar, Fernando Mier (ARCH '13, MAC '15), lead of user experience design at Beyond Design Chicago, will walk through the principles of human centered design and the importance of having an innovation team. He will also discuss what to look for in candidates when growing a multidisciplinary team with the main goal of fighting complexity.
