October 25, 2019 at 11:10 AM MERIDIAN HALL, LOWER LOBBY

This lecture is based on Yurko’s private observations of design behaviors and lifestyles on both continents: North America and Europe. Yurko is well-traveled and has 16 years of design experience in Europe and almost 2 years in North America. Visiting different conferences around the world, he has compared lecture topics and main points of conversations between designers as well as media environments, public activities, and styles of how information is presented. He can compare what designers think is important and how they see their profession. Based on his research, designers from different continents have different goals and use different skills. Of course, it is impossible to polarize two groups of designers as each creative is individual and there is significant human resources exchange between continents, however some general trends are clearly visible.
