Power of Constraints

“Here is one of the few effective keys to the design problem—the ability of the Designer to recognize as many of the constraints as possible; the willingness and enthusiasm for working within these constraints.” – Charles and Ray Eames, Design Q&A, 1972

Charles and Ray Eames knew the key to solving any design problem is using constraints. The experienced designer is able to take on any restriction and use it to their advantage. Join our conversation with local in-house design leaders about how they’ve used design constraints to inspire their teams and work across departments and disciplines. Come with your own success stories and share them with others during the reception.

The speakers include in-house design leaders from the community:
Amber Heinbockel
, Senior Product Designer at Twitter
Padraig McCobb, Design Director at Forrester
George Restrepo, Design Director at Northeastern University
Facilitated by Sarah Lukachko, VP of Design & Creative Direction at Forrester
