What's Next?

Jenn & Ken Visocky O’Grady

About this video


Jenn and Ken have two decades of experience as designers, writers and educators—and, as an unexpected by-product, fairly solid pep-talk skills, which they use on students, alumni, colleagues and sometimes each other. Turns out everyone is a little over-extended, under-praised and not sure who they want to be when they grow up. If the never-ending challenge of “What’s Next?” is too frequently on your mind, join us for a conversation about how designers can turn their systems thinking, design facilitation, brainstorming and visualization talents on themselves and plan for a more satisfying career experience and work/life balance.

They are co-authors of Design Currency, The Information Design Handbook and A Designer's Research Manual (which is suggested reading for the RGD exam). Through their work, the couple strives to make academic concepts approachable while celebrating the power and potential of design. They present at conferences, including those by AIGA and HOW, and promote design to groups, like NASA and CIFAR.
