There’s no denying that Miller is an accomplished leader in the industry, and if she fascinates you even a little, you’re in luck. On Thursday, February 24, Miller will speak as part of IBM and Project Osmosis’ talk series Designing Your Career. Her talk is called “Designing in the Dark,” and she will present critical design understanding into one of the top acclaimed eras of modern design history, “Eclectic Modernism.” Additionally, she will speak about her advocacy and the agency she founded.
