Join The Design School at ASU for our free lecture series featuring lead designers and design thinkers from around the world!
Our featured lecturer for January is designer Mia Scharphie of design consultancy Creative Agency. Scharphie combines her multifaceted design skills to focus on the intersection of design, social impact and entrepreneurship.
This year's theme will focus on "Experimentation." Lecturers will discuss how they are pushing boundaries in their field as well as share compelling examples of experimentation within their profession and the design world.
