Join us for a lecture by designer Kenneth Jewell in the Kanbar Performance Space on Thursday October 26 from 6:00 PM – 7:45 PM.
Kenneth Jewell is an Envisioner, a title coined while at Continuum in the
Strategy Practice, he was a creative lead for 12 years, helping define the
right consumer experience for global Fortune 100 companies and young
start-ups. Now independent, he continues to envision products and services
that delight people and drive business results. Trained as an industrial
designer and graduate of Art Center College of Design, his skills allow him
to act as a link between design, engineering, and business by visually
communicating concepts and strategies. He also provides a smooth transition between the strategy and development phases, bringing the knowledge gained in the early part of a project into later design phases. These lateral skills and insights help Kenneth be an advisor to product development and design courses at Harvard Business School, MIT Sloan School of Management, Boston University, and Emerson College. Kenneth has changed billions of diapers for Procter & Gamble by envisioning Pampers’ design language, helped articulate the “Bean-ness” for L.L.Bean, and had a hand with General Motors next generation hydrogen vehicle. Most notably, he collaborated with Nicholas Negroponte, co-founder of the MIT Media Lab, to help envision the first One Laptop Per Child.
