New web series explores how COVID-19 is impacting creative industries and more

Distanced by Design

Distanced by Design is a series of open-ended conversations among professional designers on how the COVID-19 pandemic is affecting creativity, innovation, and collaboration and how industry sectors or communities might change as a result. And as COVID-19 has evolved, so has the series. With over 9 episodes complete and more scheduled, the series has broadened from the, ”How is the pandemic affecting your industry,” to the simple question of, ”What creative and innovative things are happening in your field.” And the conversations continue to deliver content that is interesting to UC students, alumni and industry partners.

Alumni of the University of Cincinnati's world-class College of Design, Architecture, Art and Planning are the guests, and each conversation is led by Aaron Bradley, associate professor and director of creative, culture and social impact Initiatives with UC's Experience-Based Learning and Career Education division.

From conversations about how new constraints might drive innovation, to rebuilding communities and filling the void of serendipitous interactions in workplace design, these thought leaders are solving problems in real time providing insights you don’t want to miss. Hop on the couch and listen in!
