When: May 20-23
Where: Terminal Stores (269 11th Avenue, New York NY 10011)
WantedDesign Manhattan will return for its 7th edition at the Terminal Stores building. It is a platform dedicated to promoting design and fostering the international creative community at large throughout the year.
ASID CEO Randy Fiser will speak at WantedDesign, bringing the Assocation’s mission of “Design Impacts Life” to the panel Designing for Movement. With health and wellness on most everyone’s mind, the designer’s role in fostering an active lifestyle becomes a new kind of challenge. And as the negative effects of sedentary work become ever-clearer, health-focused design increasingly encourages movement as a means towards fitness.
Join us for a panel on May 20 at 2pm on how leading designers are designing the movement and how such strategies benefit healthy lifestyles.
