{MODE} MOtion design education summit

MODE (Motion Design Education Summit) brings together an international community of motion design educators and practitioners from different areas of expertise in order to shape the professional, theoretical and educational aspects of motion design. The papers published and presented at all the MODE Summits address the growing field of motion design and offer scholarly driven literature and examples to support and challenge educators.

MODE15 took place in Dublin, Ireland, June 3–5, 2015,  I served on the organizing committee as the Conference Experience, Coordination and Archival Chair. Tasks included managing social media promotion, organizing paper submission and review process, designing of collateral, and working with the rest of the committee to plan for the 5 keynote speakers and over 60 participants.

MODE19 took place in Wellington, NZ May 30-June 1, 2019 at Massey University’s School of Design. The central theme for 2019 was (inter)play, the way in which two or more things have an effect on each other. I was the Communications and Design Chair as well as an editor of the paper submissions. For the conference materials and website design, I worked with my student at MSU to develop the branding elements.
