#FlagAustin: A Design Thinking Workshop

Hosted at Impact Hub - Lamar

About this FieldTrip

Austinites are filled with pride for their city. Whether it’s breakfast tacos, live music, or ‘keeping it weird,“ we never lack for an Austin-based topic to insert into polite, fawning conversation. But is there a unifying symbol for Austin? We have bats, longhorns, moon towers, and a common connection to the word y’all, but no singular symbol—no beloved flag to fly when we want to show our connection to this violet crown.

In this workshop, Oracle’s digital design director, Michael Kriegshauser, will take us through a Design Thinking exercise to explore what our own personal, visual expression—what a reimagined Austin flag design could be. This is the second in a content series on this topic, #FlagAustin, the first was held at Austin Design Week 2017. Our vision is to feature the personal stories of Austin citizens along with their own, personal flag designs.

Michael Kriegshauser is a local graphic designer, amateur flag-tivist, and design thinking facilitator. He currently works as a digital design director at Oracle.

Please note: There are two Impact Hub locations. We’ll be meeting at the north-central location on N. Lamar (at Koenig).
