RISD at GigaOm Roadmap

As seen in the pictures below, President Maeda spent Monday at GigaOm’s Roadmap conference, a gathering for thought leaders across Silicon Valley put on by one of the foremost tech blogs. This year, the conference, much like the Valley overall, had its spotlight on Design. Maeda spoke about the intersection of design, technology and leadership, alongside a speaker lineup of CEOs of the most successful design-driven startups like Pinterest, Tumblr, Instagram, and of course, Airbnb. Following inspiring performances at RISD’s Mindshare event last month, Trustee Joe Gebbia also spoke at the event about the company’s roots in design, and got to hang out again with Danny Kim (seen here), who was there promoting his electric motorcycle.
