CCS Hosts Design Talk

Are you into automotive design? What about green architecture or commercial art? To be successful, all three require innovation and organizational skills.

An upcoming presentation by Louis Musante will touch on how innovation is essential to accomplishing your design goals. The event is brought to you by the College for Creative Studies (CCS), as part of its Toyota Lectures on Design, and Model D. It will focus on the best and next practices that form a blueprint for innovation. Musante will review the role of organizational culture, diversity and thinking inside the box as well as the power of looking and listening to stakeholders. He will look at diversity from an organizational and regional perspective.

The presentation, "Innovation and Design: 8½ Best & Next Practices," will be held this Friday, Sept. 21, at the Wendell W. Anderson, Jr. Auditorium in the Walter B. Ford II Building at the College for Creative Studies. The talk begins at 8:30 a.m. and will run until 10 a.m. Coffee and pastry will available.
