Top designers and creative executives gather to discuss ways design makes the world better, smarter, and more innovative.
The editors of Bloomberg Businessweek invited 26 designers to reimagine products, business, and the way we think.
World-renowned designers and creative executives across a variety of disciplines, such as architecture, graphic design, robotics, city planning, 3D printing, data visualization, genomics, corporate branding, and more, will break out of their silos to discuss the state of the industry, their creative process, and ways in which design can make the world better, smarter, cooler, and more innovative.
In December 2009, Bloomberg purchased Businessweek magazine and named Josh Tyrangiel the editor. Since then, the magazine has undergone a complete reconception and redesign, helmed by creative director Richard Turley. In 2012, the magazine earned the prestigious general excellence award for general interest publications from the American Society of Magazine Editors, Magazine of the Year award from the Society of Publication Designers, multiple awards from AIGA, D&AD and the Art Director Club, plus a Webby award for the best news-tablet app. Josh Tyrangiel was also named Ad Age‘s Editor of the Year. The magazine was featured in the “Graphic Design Now In Production” exhibition at the Walker Gallery, Minneapolis, and in “Designs of the Year” at the Design Museum in London. Reuters media critic Jack Shafer named Bloomberg Businessweek “the best magazine in America” while Walter Isaacson, author of Steve Jobs, called the magazine’s Jobs memorial “The best issue of any kind produced in the past five years.”
