November 12th is World Usability Day, and this year's theme is "Designing
for a Sustainable World". IxDA New York is pleased to partner with NYC UPA
and the School of Visual Arts to present a diverse mix of thought leaders

Our speaker list includes:
Peter Mullan, Director of Planning for Friends of the High Line - Keynote
Beto Lopez, Senior Designer at IDEO
Ted Booth, Interaction Design Lead at Smart Design
J Grossen, Creative Director at Frog
Debera Johnson, Academic Director of Sustainability at Pratt

…along with a number of entrepreneurs who have built successful business
models around the core values of sustainability and social responsibility.

Who should attend?

This conference directly benefits marketers, designers and researchers who
seek to integrate sustainability in branding, product design and messaging
in an authentic way. Consumers increasingly consider sustainability in
their checkout (or click through) decisions and attach value to brands and
experiences that win on intuitive, engaging design and social
responsibility. This event is a chance to hear directly from successful
pioneers in the field and incorporate their ideas and actions into practice.

If your employer isn't yet focused on sustainability and you want to lead
the way, or if you want to work for a company that already fights the good
fight, this event represents a great networking opportunity. But seats are
limited, so mark November 12th in your calendar and register at now.
