Next week in Ljubljana, Slovenia, the Month of Design Conference tackles the issues of design and experience at three levels: Designing bodies (How are objects created through design?); Designing space (How do real and virtual spaces intertwine); and Designing mind (How do images enter our minds and become needs?) Here's a bit more:
The Design Conference 2008 will feature a pool of design professionals, managers and internationally renowned lecturers, who will discuss the ways of maneuvering through the world of experience shocks. Ljubljana looks forward to hosting designers, fashion editors, theorists of desire, agents of consumerism, creators of web platforms, web designers, architects, interior designers, marketing gurus and consumer rights activists.
We're especially anxious to sit between the "marketing gurus" and the "consumer rights activists"!
