Domus Academy Hosts World Interaction Design Day

18 September 2018

On Tuesday, September 25, Domus Academy will host the Italian edition of World Interaction Design Day, the annual initiative dedicated to advancing the craft and showing the world how interaction design improves the human condition.

This year’s theme, Diversity and Inclusion in Design, challenges the interaction design community to look at how language, culture, gender, age, and ability are reflected in design, and how we as designers can use our skills and knowledge to improve the accessibility of products, services, and organizations for the community at large.

On this occasion, Domus Academy is pleased to feature two eminent interaction designers. Gillian Crampton Smith is one of the most internationally renowned personalities in the field of interface and interaction design, awarded in 2014 with the Lifetime Practice Award at the SIGCHI in Toronto. Dario Buzzini, another influential figure on the global scene of interaction design, manages his consulting practice, BBDB, in collaboration with companies such as Arduino, CIID, and IDEO.

Smith and Buzzini will explore the close connections between humans and technology in a world where diversity and inclusion are playing an increasingly important role. They will talk about why these considerations must be among the priorities of every designer.

Their talks will be followed by a panel discussion between them and other outstanding personalities in the Italian interaction design scene, such as Erica Moreti, principal at EPAM Continuum, and Fabio Sergio, director of EALA regional design at Fjord.

The event is sponsored by Adobe and organized by Andrea Pedrina, chapter leader for Milan and Turin of the Interaction Design Association (IxDA . Milan & Turin).
