IMAGINARY FORCES DIRECTOR OF EXPERIENCE DESIGN TALI KRAKOWSKY TO SPEAK AT SOLD-OUT FITC TORONTO CONFERENCE

On Monday, April 21st, Imaginary Forces Director of Experience Design Tali Krakowsky will be presenting at the FITC Toronto conference, which is taking place on April 19th – 22nd at the Hilton Toronto (145 Richmond Street West).

Titled “Designing Fiction,” Krakowsky’s presentation will provide an introduction to Experience Design, and how it impacts design thinking and branding.

Fiction meets science when emerging media, interactive content, cinematic storytelling and architecture come together to create Experience Design. Re-imagining both media content and screens, Experience Design challenges traditional forms of content creation and expands the art of the digital into the realm of the physical. In her session, Krakowsky will make these seemingly abstract ideas very real and demonstrate that much of the present and future of design and architecture resides in this new discipline.

This will be the fourth FITC event that Krakowsky has been invited to participate in, having spoken at FITC Toronto, FITC Hollywood and FITC Amsterdam in 2007.
