Designers + Geeks
San Francisco

Designers + Geeks features talks from experts on design, technology, startups, and all manner of geekery. If you want to be the first to hear about new Designers + Geeks events, sign up for the newsletter.


Design is connected to everything we see, use and experience with lasting impact on individuals and businesses. Taking a closer look at research and development (R&D), we are constantly searching for alternatives that bring efficient solutions to make people's lives easier. Daniel Soltis will uncover the secrets behind building an R&D approach into your work—whether you're based in an agency or a business—or you're a student. That ranges from everything he’s learned from collaborating with multi-disciplinary experts—to engaging users and building useful prototypes. Soltis will focus on cultivating this unique spot in a designer's mind—and the future growth of business. Attendees will walk away with concrete ideas on how to make things happen.
