The Harvard xDesign Conference is an annual exploration of all things design. Launched in 2012, the conference is a collaborative effort between student groups at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, Harvard Business School, and Harvard College - and the only cross-school event of its kind.

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. The conference will take place this year on Saturday November 8, 2014.

Our theme this year is [UN]packing the design process behind the products we love. We aim to [UN]veil the design process, diving deep into the evolution of (print) products, from idea to scale, and offer our audience a more versatile, nuanced understanding of how to make products that people love.
Harvard xDesign is open to everyone! In the past, it has sold out with over 500 participants. This year, we have added capacity and are expecting upwards of 800 people. Participants range from Harvard graduate and undergraduate students across all degrees, non-Harvard students and faculty, and New England area professionals.
