At Interaction11 Richard Buchanan gave us a gentle rap on the knuckles, saying "this audience doesn't know much about the history and theory of design do you?"
IxDA Toronto wants to remedy this, so we're doing a primer on Industrial Design, presented by Ian Hooper of Autodesk.
Come and join us on Monday, May 16th from 7-9 at Normative Design, 376 Bathurst Street, 2nd Floor, just north of Dundas.
We have only 30 spaces available. Sign up on Guestlist.
If you sign up and cannot make it please please please please let us know in advance by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org so we can give your chair to someone else.
Ian Hooper began to explore the creation
of user experiences at Bishop’s University in the early ‘90s where his
thesis piece was an immersive environment installation piece
that won him the top prize for studio excellence. At the University of
Calgary he explored the confluence of the digital and physical while
earning a Master’s degree in Industrial Design with a focus on
ergonomics. Professionally he has designed everything
from socially oriented cybercafé furniture to interactive television
controllers for the elderly. Now at Autodesk Ian works as an interaction
designer on innovative 3D graphics software.
