The High Gravity Design Series returns to Charleston on June 23 from 6:30pm till 8:30pm at Palmetto Brewing Company.  This time around, the featured speaker is J Cornelius (@jc)

Redesign Our Design Thinking

Design is beautiful and beautiful things are well-designed. While this is true, it isn’t the whole truth—aesthetics definitely are NOT everything. Sometimes the best design isn’t what you think, and we need to leave our design aesthetic ego at the door and focus on positive outcomes for the user. This talk will challenge your assumptions about what great design is, and discuss ideas about how we can be better designers by focusing on process, function, and outcomes instead of visuals.
