So what happened to that design student who created a speculative product, a fictional company, and filmic scenarios that made everything seem disturbingly real? Join us for this informal conversation with Desmond Wong, who graduated from the Industrial Design program in 2011 after designing the Elysium Implant. He will share stories about his path from Chinese factories in Shenzhen, patient journey design in hospitals in Saudi Arabia, and user interface design for home appliances in Stockholm. Desmond is now a designer at Bosch Siemens Home Appliances. That part is real.

Desmond Wong is a Designer at the Bosch Siemens Home Appliance Group, where he leads UX design in the Corporate Innovation department. He has a diverse design background, from early customer insight acquisition to early concept development and product implementation for market launch.

His design career gave him experience in product implementation with Chinese factories in Shenzhen, patient journey design in hospitals in Saudi Arabia, and user interface design for home appliances in Stockholm. At Bosch Siemens Home Appliances, he is the go-to guy for user-centred expertise in the company's innovation projects. He is currently living in the foothills of the Bavarian Alps with his partner and young son.
