SHIFT is an outdoor design camp for the maker in all of us. SHIFT aims to reframe the routine of our daily lives as designers and reignite the playful nature of the design community. Using physically and mentally challenging activities, students and professionals will be brought together in a nontraditional way to break the boundaries in networking and create long-lasting relationships.
The upcoming Plastics in Medical Devices 2013 conference (May 13-15 at the Waltham Westin Boston in Waltham, MA) will provide device designers, brand owners and processors with insights into today’s challenges for developing and commercializing such devices.
"Some 150 industrial design students working in 34 groups came up with innovative takes on pens and organizers as part of this year’s sprint collaboration with industry partner Newell Rubbermaid.
