“Design Goes Mainstream” lecture series

I just came across the Design Goes Mainstream lecture series. It features lectures from:

January 24 – 7:00 pm
Donald Strum
Principal, Michael Graves Design Group (these are the guys that have been responsible for Target’s identity/commercials and a lot of their in-store products for the past couple of years)

January 31 – 7:00 pm
Lars Engman
University College Director, HDK, School of Design and Crafts at Göteborg
Formerly Design Director, IKEA

and

February 7 – 7:00 pm
Byron Merritt
Creative Director, Consumer Experience, Nike Global Brand Design
Formerly Practice Leader, IDEO

Sounds like a great lineup of speakers not to mention a great topic. If you’re in Houston and plan on attending, let me know.
