This event has been postponed due to CCA’s ongoing response to the evolving COVID–19 outbreak. Please check back at a later date for updates.
August de los Reyes will share the life-transforming accident that changed his work as a designer. After delving into topics such as video games and the American Dream, he will share his high level approach to Inclusive Design—how it can extend beyond product accessibility—and give a modest proposal for good design in the 21st century.
Dedicated to using technology for human well-being, August is currently the Chief Design Officer for Varo, a social-impact start-up poised to be the first mobile-only national bank in the United States. Previously, August was Director of User Experience at Google, leading the Ecosystem Design for the Google Search and Assistant. He holds an MDesS with distinction from Harvard and is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Arts.
