If you're going to be at MakerFaire this weekend (and if you're anywhere near NYC then we know you will be!), don't miss a special panel devoted to design: "Design and DIY: How Makers Are Influencing Product Design." The panel will feature Smart Design's Carla Diana, Teague Design's Tad Toulis, Frog Design's Jered Ficklin, and New Deal Design's Gadi Amit. An all-star lineup moderated by Core77's Allan Chochinov, here's the pitch:
Hackers, modders, DIYers and makers of all kinds are influencing how product designers approach their craft. Come learn first hand how 4 top designers are embracing this new ethos, the implications it holds for their profession, and how maker culture is impacting the very nature of what it means to design.
The panel takes place on Saturday, September 29th, at 3:30 in the auditorium. Get bios and more info at the site, and we'll see you there!
Plus, Core77 has a few more pairs of tickets to give away—find out how to get them here
