Data-Driven: An Interactive Panel on the Future of Design

The relationship between data, design, and technology has always been fundamentally powerful, but never more noisy than now. As the creative community continues to push the boundaries of design, how do we make sense of all the noise? And more importantly, how do we move forward with the context and confidence necessary to make a meaningful impact on the future?

MODintelechy presents an interactive panel exploring how cross-functional collaboration and the use of smarter technology can help designers more effectively leverage data to shape the stories they tell. Join us at our historical home on Guadalupe Street, where we'll lead two probing conversations around:

1. (Data) - We will explore how to educate teams on embracing “too much data,” and how the right mindset is required to surface actionable data for design.

2. (Technology) – With the web moving toward innovations like smart contracts in the blockchain, we’ll look into the future and hypothesize changes across digital identity, expression, privacy, and transparency—and how this impacts our creative community.
