Created Keynote presentations spanning over 2 days, containing over 200 slides, during the General Assembly in Torino, Italy. Under the theme “Achieving the SDGs by design,” the presentation touched upon multiple SDGs and how the WDO’s World Design Capital program fit into these goals. This presentation contained a complex array of animation, images and video integration. The presentation had to be minimal in text for non-English speakers, but visually comprehensive.
In collaboration with FEED (a design agency) and Expression Web, I coordinated the implementation of the new World Design Organization website and procured their new domain, wdo.org.
While FEED created the brand, Expression Web created the function and structure of the website, I lead to the creation of the site architecture and creation of all site pages. This meant migrating all content from icsid.org, managed and branded all content of all subsidiary programs such as World Design Capital, Interdesign, World Industrial Design Day, World Design Impact Prize, and the General Assembly. The rebrand also included the intranet for members and the newsletters in Constant Contact.

The organization moved to abolish manual voting, where members held up physical cards during quorums, motions and elections. We replace it with electronic voting through an app. This was an entirely new challenge as we had to onboard over 60 international users live during the General Assembly.
Celebrating its 60th anniversary, WDO's new brand name (previously the International Council of Societies of Industrial Design) was officially launched at the 30th General Assembly. I created the branding for the theme of the General Assembly, "Achieving the SDGs by design", utilizing the color palette of the wheel. I branded all printed collaterals for the event including badges, x-banners, signage and wayfinding.
