Join us for our second lecture in the series, featuring four speakers giving four talks in forty minutes. This month’s topic:
We often see the final result — whether it be a product, a feature film, or a short story. But behind these strong finishes are strong interviewers who conducted bodies of research to inform the outcomes we now enjoy. Whether the fit and finishes of those interviews are visible or not, these interviewers play a pivotal role in shaping the final outcome. Learn from four practitioners how they ask the questions to get the answers they need; how disparate and unexpected research methods can inform the final outcome.
- Gary Hustwit, Director, Helvetica, Objectified

- Elisabeth M. De Morentin, Illinois Institute of Technology, Institute of Design
