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.
