Connections by Design: Innovating A World Sans Ghosting

Have you ever been ghosted by a recruiter or suddenly ignored by a love interest? Perhaps there’s a message in your inbox sitting in limbo from someone following your work online, now looking to network in person over coffee.

We experience a considerable amount of interactions in front of a computer or on a smartphone, but when transitioning from online to offline, those connections can become muddled, lost, or sometimes never happen at all.

In this experiential workshop collaboration between Onyx Valley, Field LabX, and Service Design Philadelphia, we'll use design to re-imagine these relationship transitions. We’ll examine common digital to in-person interactions and develop solutions that can finally make the transition from digital to real life work.

No design experience is necessary. Onyx Valley students will be on-hand to coach you. Come ready to learn, share, and build!

We're building this experience with you (yes, you) in mind; registration is required.
