MFA Interaction Design – 136 W. 21st Street (between 6th and 7th Avenues)

Admission: Free

Mari Nakano practices what design can do for products, services, and teams in the social impact space. She is the Deputy Director of the Product & Design Team for the NY Mayor’s Office of Economic Opportunity where she recently joined to help shape one of the nation’s first civic service design studios. Prior to this role, she served as the Design & Interaction Lead for UNICEF’s Office of Innovation where she focused on enmeshing designers in a multi-disciplinary global team of innovators focused on developing forward-thinking solutions to improve the lives of children around the world.

The talk is organized by MFA Interaction Design, a program of the School of Visual Arts that trains students to research, analyze, prototype, and design concepts in their business, social, and cultural contexts. It explores the strategic role of interaction design in shaping everyday life, and it intends to increase the relevancy of design to business and to society so designers can make a difference.
