Conversations that matter...
Design in the Moment explores our ability to design the world around us -- at every level -- and the obligations inherent in that power. 'Designers' have traditionally just made things beautiful. But that's no longer the case. We are all inheriting the need for and responsibility to design.
The term has finally evolved to include what we could call the 'Latin root language of design' born of a rapidly emerging profession. These are the user-centered designers -- those who design for the intersection of technology and the human experience.
As we realize that business markets can now be designed, that businesses can shift context overnight, that newcomers can unseat century-old veterans... we realize that design is a tool for positive disruption (or positive nuisance).

Through a series of incredibly compelling conversations with an eclectic and profound group of people, we're finding our way toward a new set of answers.
Jim Jacoby and Jim Cohen host Design in the Moment. Guests share their views and join the discussions, drawing from their own experiences and personal points of view. The dialogue is candid, conversational and unscripted.
