Re:Design/Creative Directors 2014 (Archive)

Palm Springs, CA

The theme for 2014 was Adaptation: How we change (and what we change) has ever greater importance and ever greater meaning. Whether translating ideas from one medium to another, morphing old infrastructures into new platforms, or reinventing entire careers, adaptation is the choice between what becomes the future and what remains the past.

Re:Design/Creative Directors 2014 was curated by Symposiarch Christopher Simmons, Principal/Creative Director, MINE™ and featured a keynote conversation with Su Mathews Hale, Senior Partner, Lippincott.
