Kicker Studio’s 3rd annual Device Design Day (D3) conference is August 3, 2012 at the San Francisco Art Institute. D3 2012 offers a full day of inspirational discussions that explore the product design frontier. Kicker Studio curated the program to highlight how natural user interface impacts design. By considering theory, best practices, and practical implications, D3 2012 will define what it means to make technology speak human. Leading innovators present talks throughout the first part of the day. During the second part of the day, attendees choose between two panels and a workshop where they have a chance to be more intimately involved in the conversation.
Tickets cost $399 and participants can register at http://devicedesignday.com.

“This year’s program has been curated to address the problems that we know our clients struggle against,” states Kicker Studio co-founder and creative director, Jody Medich. “We hope the content will reach across and inspire all of our attendees.”
Of the event, Core 77 said: “It really is possible to have an exploratory and engaging conference in a single day.” Last year’s attendees called for Kicker Studio to “do it again, pls,” because as one attendee said days after D3 2011, “I am already making plans to attend next year.” They said they “found value in the quantity and breadth of the presentations.”
