Design Lab Showcase

Design Lab Showcase 2021

Thursday, February 4, 2021, 4 – 6 p.m. PST

At the UC San Diego Design Lab, design is a way of thinking. Our scholars focus on the interaction of people and technology, treating issues as systems to solve problems related to everyday events, industrial organization, products, services, routines and structures.

Don Norman has inspired generations of designers to work across disciplines to seek solutions. Since 1966, Don has been a faculty member in the Departments of Psychology, Cognitive Science, and Electrical and Computer Engineering. In honor of his tenure as director and the groundbreaking center he created, we are celebrating the Design Lab’s legacy of leading-edge, human-centered design.

The Design Lab is hosting a virtual event to showcase the stellar work of our students and faculty. Even in the face of an ongoing global pandemic, our scholars have found new ways to collaborate, discover and innovate.

Ucsd Designers In Residence Community Driven

Designers in Residence Support Community-Driven Design Initiatives

In 2019, Grace Reiger and Brian LeDuc uprooted from Washington, DC and set out across the country together for San Diego. They brought them with a wealth of knowledge in community building around design, education and career development. Driven with a mission to spearhead community design initiatives and active communities across San Diego they saw a huge opportunity in bridging their work in Washington, DC with the needs of the San Diego community around service and career design.

"Grace and Brian really exemplify what we strive for in the Design Lab. A community first approach to design - one built on identifying challenges and jointly coming up with tangible solutions with and for those in need of them. We are extremely lucky to have two Designers in Residence on board who embody those principles."

- Michele Morris, Associate Director, Design Lab
