He speaks and teaches internationally and has written extensively on design and business issues, including, “Experience Design 1” and “Making Meaning.” Nathan is a serial entrepreneur, works in several media, and consults strategically for companies to build better, more meaningful experiences for their customers. His latest book, “Design is the Problem” from Rosenfeld Media, is an exhaustive primer on sustainable design.

Please join AIGA Philadelphia and PhillyCHI in welcoming Nathan Shedroff to Philadelphia.
