xD Conference

The Harvard Design Conference is the university’s annual exploration of all things design. Launched in 2012, the conference is a collaborative effort between groups at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Harvard Business School, and Harvard College. The event brings together creative thinkers, design luminaries, experts from a variety of backgrounds, professors, and students to engage in and reinterpret the design process for a selected subject.
