Design is changing the game in Silicon Valley
John Maeda, Design Partner, KPCB; Former President, RISD
Design is changing the game in Silicon Valley and impacting the way tech is integrated into our everyday lives. Join us as John Maeda discusses the exciting changes that are happening at the intersection of design and technology. Last year, he joined Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers (KPCB) as the firm’s first-ever design partner and has since released his #DesignInTech Report which highlights insightful business-design trends. His analysis ranges from industry big picture, such as Google and Facebook’s atypical acquisition of 14 creative firms, to up close and personal: mobile users are checking their phones every 5.6 minutes. Hear from John Maeda as he helps us unfold how design is changing how we interact, work, hire, code and create.
