GENDER BLENDING DESIGN: shrink & pink is not a plan

Las Vegas Market | Hazz DesignWife-husband design team Tracy & tom Hazzard share their Genderblend design philosophy in this witty and engaging presentation on tailoring product and interior design based on the realities of consumer demographics: women make or influence up to 85% of furniture and consumers goods buying decisions in the U.S. To the Hazz Design team, designing for both genders doesn’t mean slapping on a coat of pink paint and alienating male consumers. Rather, it’s a complex dance of innovation, aesthetics, human psychology, market research and manufacturing knowledge.
