Design Inspires Design

How to build a culture of collaborative creativity.

At 3M Design, we apply science in collaborative ways to improve lives and connect with customers every day. We inspire a culture that never stops inventing; we translate insights into creative solutions that positively impact our business, our customers and our world. Join us for a candid conversation with 3M’s chief design officer, Eric Quint and a few 3M design leaders on how we enrich innovation, advance brand experience and drive transformation.

About mINhouse

mINhouse events are planned and hosted by AIGA Minnesota’s In-House Designers Committee and are focused on the interests of Minnesota in-house designers. Established in 2009, the In-House Designers Committee fosters awareness and respect within the AIGA Minnesota chapter by providing resources, support, education, and enhanced programming specific to designers’ needs. With in-house designers making up roughly one third of AIGA Minnesota’s membership, the committee’s goal is to give this group a voice and enhance the connection of in-house designers to the local chapter. We encourage those interested in getting involved to join the In-House Designers Committee.
