As we move forward into 2017, we are seeing the landscape of design evolve into a more human-centered, experience-based profession. Design has shifted from its traditional practices of ink and paper and progressed into creating world-wide transformative connections.

Continuing the theme of future forward thinking, HIVE 2017 will focus directly on improving technological and social advances using various design techniques. Seminar topics will range from virtual reality and artificial intelligence to social justice and communication design. Speakers will include local and national experts whose established best practices and innovative skill sets are influencing the evolution of design to shape positive change. Tackling a wide range of design and communication challenges, these top professionals, creatives and thinkers are creating a future full of possibilities.
