Impact Salon: Design and Healthcare Innovation

Dana will be sharing her design and innovation work with health care systems from the Mayo Clinic, to Kaiser to UCSF. There will be plenty of time for Q&A.

Dana Ragouzeos is a designer and design researcher with extensive experience working within health care. She loves to listen and observe. At work, she turns her focus toward understanding the intricacies of what makes our health care experiences great or down right terrible. Turning that knowledge into action, creating positive experiences for patients, providers, and families through design, is incredibly satisfying.

Are designers activists, or is design inherently an unethical profession?

Richard will review the evidence suggesting that designers are increasingly functioning as and are being encouraged to function as activists. He will then elaborate on the arguments that designers shouldn’t function as activists, explore what activism means, and describe the obstacles typically encountered by designers to functioning as activists.

Playing with Fire: Arguing for the Imperative of Transgressive, Near-Illegitimate Design

The power of design to create meaningful change is on its way to matching the power of design to move markets. But what about the areas where design might fear to tread, or “has no business” inserting itself? Through over a dozen examples—from designing for assisted suicide or teaching children criminal arts, to providing wayfinding to urban violence or creating consumer electronics for recording prison abuse—this lecture will look at design at the margins, highlighting projects that are daring, maybe objectionable, perhaps even “illegitimate,” in order to find out what might be just inside, or just outside, the reasonable limits of design practice and education.
