We are excited to have been selected once again to host two Design Week programs at our office. We are passionate about high-quality digital design and the impact it can have on healthcare providers, patients, and caregivers in our space.

Viscira, a leading provider of digital marketing solutions and software products for the life sciences industry, is pleased to announce its participation in the upcoming San Francisco Design Week, which will be held June 20-28, 2019. SF Design Week is the largest design festival in the Bay Area, which spans Silicon Valley, the city of San Francisco, the East Bay, Marin, and beyond. Each year the festival brings together over 50,000 designers, trade professionals, nonprofits, entrepreneurs, and business leaders for a week-long series of events, lectures, panel discussions, and studio visits.

Viscira was selected to host two unique programs that will take place at its SF headquarters at 909 Battery Street. These events are described below:

1. Designing for AR in Healthcare: A Guerrilla Design Workshop – June 24th

This hands-on workshop will allow participants to explore the future of augmented reality (AR) in the healthcare industry. After a brief introduction to AR design, attendees will be divided into small teams and will be given a design challenge and 90 minutes to ideate, design, and prototype a solution. Each team will present their idea to the full group. The workshop is designed to be a fun exercise in the emerging field of AR for both newbies and experts alike.

2. Crafting a Meaningful Trade Show Experience – June 26th
Viscira will host a 60-minute panel discussion focused on interactive and environmental design for trade show environments. The panel discussion will address the elements that go into creating an engaging user experience for a trade show. The panel will also touch upon how to balance stakeholders’ goals, booth vendor requirements, and design best practices to create an exhibit that meets everyone’s needs.

The panel will be moderated by Richard Luong, a seasoned Art Director and Designer with over 15 years of advertising experience, who currently works at Viscira on the Visual Design Team.

In addition to panelists from Viscira’s own Design and Animation Teams, the panel will also include:

  • Alan Wolf, co-founder and President of California Model & Design Group, Inc. Founded in 1982, CMD’s main focus is model making and prototyping for industrial design, architecture, advertising/photography, and litigation. Alan is also an adjunct professor of Industrial Design at California College of the Arts and a founding member of the Association of Professional Model Makers.

“We are excited to have been selected once again to host two Design Week programs at our office. We are passionate about high-quality digital design and the impact it can have on healthcare providers, patients, and caregivers in our space. Our events sold out last year and we expect to have a stellar turnout for this years’ events,” said Gretchen Harwood, Director of Visual Design at Viscira.

There is a small admission charge for participation in the SF Design Week events at Viscira. All proceeds collected from the events will be donated to charity. To purchase tickets or for more information, visit the SF Design Week website.
