The Business of Design 2012


On October 16, 2012, leading innovators and thinkers in business and design were invited to Cooper-Hewitt's Business of Design Breakfast, an annual National Design Week event, for a discussion about creative ways each community can be inspired by the other. Bob Safian, publisher of Fast Company, moderated the conversation. Themes included how design can be a productive methodology for business, provocation and its role in design to move a business forward, and the opportunities and challenges of hiring new design talent.

Cooper-Hewitt's New Acting Director


As you may know, Paul Warwick Thompson, the Museum’s director of eight years, has resigned to accept the position of rector of the Royal College of Art in London. Starting July 13th, I will serve as acting director of the museum while a ten-member committee, of which I am a part, searches for a permanent director.
