Designing Meaningful Change

The world is coming at us pretty fast these days. Join us to talk about how we might design better tomorrows. Nick Scappaticci and Tellart’s Providence Studio invite you to enjoy a cocktail and discuss how we can embrace the uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity of our modern world. Learn more about their strategy and design studio and how they partner with visionaries, underdogs, and pioneers to move industries forward. Together, let’s dream big and talk about how to innovate with purpose.

He is responsible for leading a staff of strategists, designers and technologists, and for creating a cohesive cultural environment that enables project and career success. Inspired by what could be, he motivates people, teams and organizations to look past today’s problems and turn aspirations into reality.

Laila Aukee leads design of products, services, and experiences for internationally recognized companies and cultural institutions.. Collaborative by nature, she prides herself in building long standing client relationships and seamlessly working with interdisciplinary teams. Her background in music and industrial design inform a human-centered, experiential approach to design for growth toward desired change in herself, her team, and her clients.

He has a background in industrial design, visual communication, and two decades of experience in producing narrative and interactive multimedia. Jack is also a seasoned photographer and filmmaker, regularly contributing to communication initiatives.

Alyssa Bishop loves problem solving. She uses creativity and logic in equal parts to tell engaging stories and finds sincere joy in shifting perceptions whether that means helping people see something old in a new light or introducing a completely new perspective. Every project presents a new challenge and being able to answer that challenge thrills her.
