Hi, I’m Xinyue Zhou, first year MDes student, second year at ID. Last year I joined the BarnRaise experience swag team and made the ruler gift for all attendees at Motorola reception. I feel so excited that I could lead a six week “design project” with a group of creative designers and make it real.
Q1: What does the experience team do?
We create two-and-half-day physical and digital environments in all spaces for all participants to enjoy BarnRaise without any trouble.
Q2: What are your goals and expectations?
We are trying to create an experience that captures to connection between design, technology, and healthcare. There are a lot of different activities happening throughout the BarnRaise conference and teams will be focused on their challenges in varying locations. While they work on a specific challenge, we also want participants to feel like they are part of a larger group effort that is working to improve access to care and make a difference.
The team of volunteers is thrilled to be designing the conference experience and shaping the feeling participants have throughout the two-and-a-half days. Their desire to build on their existing knowledge and learn outside of the classroom really highlights their commitment to the community.
