Design That Moves Culture
Byron Merritt is Vice President and Global Creative Director for Nike Digital. In this role he oversees the design, development and creation of Nike’s digital experiences. Central to that is the Nike+ ecosystem of mobile applications.
Previously, Byron Merritt was Senior Creative Director and leader of Nike’s North America Brand design. In this role he drove how the Nike brand came to life across all consumer touch points -- retail, digital, events and brand experiences.
The team he led focused on driving innovation around how the products Nike makes, the services created around those products, the places where consumers interact with those products and services (both physical and digital), and the communication, messaging and storytelling all come together in a seamless experience for consumers. His work fuses marketing, design and innovation.
At Nike, Merritt drove creative around the launch of the Nike+ Fuelband and was a part of the team creating the product experience. Additionally, Byron Merritt has led the development of many Nike firsts. He was creative director for Nike’s first video game Nike+ Kinect Training, designed for the Xbox Kinect platform as well as new to Nike customization experiences.
Prior to Nike, Byron worked at what’s been considered to be the world’s most innovative design company, IDEO in San Francisco, CA. Byron Merritt earned a masters in architecture at SCIArc and currently lives in Portland, OR with his wife and son.
Walter is the Creative Director and Founder of Hood Design Studio in Oakland, California. Hood Design Studio is his tripartite practice, working across art + fabrication, design + landscape, and research + urbanism. He is also a professor of landscape architecture at the University of California, Berkeley and lectures on professional and theoretical projects nationally and internationally.
Walter designs and creates urban spaces and objects that are public sculpture. Believing everyone needs beauty in their life, he makes use of everyday objects to create new apertures through which to see the surrounding emergent beauty, strangeness, and idiosyncrasies of urban space. His ideas emerge from years of studying and practicing architecture, landscape architecture, and fine arts, and yet Walter tactfully eschews from differentiating between the three on any one project.
The Studio’s award winning work has been featured in publications including Dwell, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Fast Company, Architectural Digest, Places Journal, and Landscape Architecture Magazine. Walter Hood is also a recipient of the 2017 Academy of Arts and Letters Architecture Award.

Viewers learn that Frank Lloyd Wright was not only a visionary and icon, but he also provided unique opportunities for women to learn the craft of architecture at Taliesin. The 20-minute film unearths the experience of more than 100 female fellows at Taliesin with a focus on six individuals who have carved a place for themselves in the legacy of women in architecture.
The screening will be followed by a Panel Discussion with Beverly Willis & fellow CCNY Alumna, moderated by CCNY Professor Marta Gutman.
