New York City, Feb 3–8, 2017

Interaction 17

It was amazing! More than 1,000 design leaders, professionals, and students converged in New York City for IxDA’s 10th annual gathering—six days of events, talks, workshops, and awards. We learned, we laughed, we loved. And now we’re all looking ahead to Interaction 18 in Lyon, France.
