While "Innovation" has become the buzzword the media continues to promote, Design -- of products, packaging, communications, and even systems or organizations -- is truly effective only when it deeply resonates with customers or stakeholders. But how can we know what will resonate with them before we begin? At the NorCal BMA March Roundtable, Steve Diller, Partner at Cheskin, will share his view that it's really Meaning that makes the difference and will reveal the most effective, if underappreciated, approach to developing design strategies that work. This presentation, which will include ample time for Q&A, will provide thought-provoking and practical considerations for you as you begin your next project or campaign.
