MDC’s Idea Center and School of Entertainment & Design Technology in collaboration with New World School of the Arts at MDC recently presented an interdisciplinary design conference and expo focused on developing creative South Florida talent.

As part of the Digital Design Den (D3) conference, students and professionals gleaned information to improve their skills while connecting to learn from like-minded, innovative designers. Presenters included:

  • Birago Jones, CEO of UBQ Media and president of the MIT Media Lab Alumni Association
  • Robert Kirkpatrick and David Woodward, Lava Studio Team

Targeted for the next generation of creative minds, D3 allowed participants to learn the art and business of design, explore cutting-edge creative tools and learn the latest industry techniques from top professionals. The conference was geared toward students in pursuit of various careers in design, as well as emerging artists and designers looking to enhance knowledge and skill sets, exhibitors showcasing current and emerging hardware and software technologies, and local potential employers and recruiters.
