DESIGNERS ARE NOT MAKERS
WED, MAR 15, 6:45–9PM | HELMS BAKERY DISTRICT

The growth we have witnessed in “maker” culture has given us increased access to the tools and information needed to tinker, program, and build custom products and solutions. Manufacturing can now happen on a desktop as easily as in a home workshop. The benefits of stepping away from a computer to work with your hands continues to gain influence in business and culture. Yet, with all the focus on making, it is the designer who gets celebrated once the “making” becomes mass production.

As digital technology continues to insert itself into our daily lives, what is the role of the tactile? What is the importance of physical creation in a world of digital technology, virtual reality, 3D printing and rapid prototyping? And where does to the act of designing stop, so the role of making can take over?
