Design Panel Series: Carly Ayres (Google Design)

May 5 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM


Carly Ayres is a writer and digital innovator, using language and interaction to engage people in new and interesting ways.

As a New York-based creative and true “Docs” connoisseur, Carly is well known for her precocious, humorous, and often cutting-edge sensibility. She has turned heads in the design world by way of her homepage—an editable Google Doc website made long before such sites became the design trend. Part genius and part tongue-in-cheek, Ayres runs the 100sUnder100, a Slack group and event series for creatives “under 100 years old”. She also co-founded the acclaimed design and technology studio, HAWRAF, which formerly engaged people and clients in new and interesting ways before closing its doors in 2019. Now, as part of the UX Community & Culture team at Google, she leads content for Google Design, telling stories about the people, product, and practice of UX.

Wednesday, 12/9, 12:30pm PST FREE and open to all!

Reserve your spot via Eventbrite, and we’ll send you a Zoom link.

You can find more about Carly via her google doc homepage or on instagram at @carlyayres. You can also find some great work (“scrubbed of all the stuff that would get us sued”) still accessible through HAWRAF.

Hosted by the BFA Graphic Design program at Pacific Northwest college of Art since 2016, the Design Lecture Series welcomes designers from all over the world to share their work and what moves them. The fall 2020 evolution of our series will take advantage of the potential for more interaction across our distances by hosting panel discussions in place of traditional lectures. As a way to open our doors and minds to the broad and vibrant possibilities in design, panels will be driven by current students in conversation with a diverse set of fascinating creative folks who break expectations of what design can be and do in the world today.

Presented by PNCA Graphic Design in collaboration with FISK.
