Join us for a presentation that will blow your mind, from 11 a.m. to noon, on Thursday, November 17 with Rob Englert, Founder and CEO of RAM ID.  The event will be held in the Peter Graham Scholarly Commons, Bird Library.

Get a glimpse into design innovation and how new ways of thinking can change the world at one of the most innovative events set for Global Entrepreneurship Week at Syracuse University.  You’ll see how design is more than just form and function.  Global innovators agree that designers and design thinking are the most essential tools in arming business with the disruptive new products and services they need in the global economy.

If design is a superpower that can change the world, that makes designers its super heroes. Meet one of them, Rob Englert — a prolific innovator who founded RAM ID, which specializes in consumer products, user interactions and experiences, and solving complex problems.

A former VPA – School of Design faculty member, Rob now consults with companies such as Bose, Carrier, Kodak, Safety First, Ridgid, and Honeywell.  His firm, RAM ID, is unique for the level of entrepreneurial work that takes place within the studio, from beautifully designed products like Orange Vessel, to the packaging for Chobani, and is now moving into the world of advanced immersive VR technologies.  Rob will speak about his various entrepreneurial efforts from various design disciplines, sharing projects that take on risks through user-based feedback, trend forecasting, and design exploration.  His work is a creative disruptive force in the design world.

He’ll also preview a new project that he is working on.  It’s where VR is headed, and you will not want to miss this amazing preview of something that is poised to be the next great disruptive and creative force in the world of design, technology, entertainment, media and lifestyle.

This event is sponsored by VPA – School of Design.
