Upcoming Experiences

Personal Ethics & Design: A dialogue with the Vancouver design community

October 17, 2019 | 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm | Domain7 Railtown Studio, Vancouver

A Van UX Awards 2019 Workshop: in partnership with Domain7

Why do you design? How do you design? Join Stanley Lai in exploring the values that drive our daily work as a community.

Drawing from the Domain7 team's co-creative approach, and informed by Stanley Lai's recent research in design ethics, this is a unique and meaningful workshop crafted specifically for the Vancouver design community.

Enjoy an evening with peers, carefully examining the motives and values that drive us to create in the ways we do. Through thoughtful dialogue, we will unpack our individual and shared stories, describing what matters to us and how that determines how we design.

The complex and challenging realities emerging globally in our era demand the response of conscientious, collectively-minded designers. Much has been written and said from stages around the world about design and tech's role in shaping a thriving future. Let's take a collaborative step as a community of practitioners, creating ethical signposts to help us address emergent futures.

Food and refreshments will be provided. Event fees go towards covering the hosting costs of the workshop.

Alongside his speaking schedule, Stan works with teams to facilitate and teach design approaches that build better cultures and more effective organizations.

Stan's served as a sergeant in the Singapore Armed Forces and has produced award-winning design work for startups and tech firms from Asia Pacific to the UK to Vancouver.
