XPLANE is touring the U.S. 

Our first stop? Detroit, MI. 

As the inaugural week in the Pop-Up XPLANE series, we're bringing a team of XPLANE consultants, designers, and creative geniuses to midwest's own Rock City to raise awareness about who we are, show people the services we provide, and spread the XPLANE love. We will be calling Michigan our home at the Detroit Creative Corridor Center from June 20-24, 2016 with a week of events to give prospective clients, new friends, and the Detroit community a taste of what we do, including free strategy and visioning sessions, creative challenge sprints, Visual Thinking School, cocktail receptions, and more. Sign up to be a part of our first Pop-Up below. We're excited to collaborate with you!

Visual Thinking for Kids

THURSDAY, JUNE 23
8:00-11:00AM

Of all of the information our brain processes, pictures are retained at a far higher rate than words. We are ready to pass down all of our visual thinking knowledge to teach our young attendees how to become visually literate, use the visual alphabet, and apply these skills to school, projects, and their lives.

Design Thinking vs. Visual Thinking Discussion

WEDNESDAY, JUNE 22
5:00-7:00PM

Most people who work in strategy, innovation, or problem-solving can tell you that design thinking and visual thinking are not the same, but not everyone can easily articulate the difference. We're calling all Detroit-based thought leaders and creatives to dive into the inner workings of the two ideas lead by our creative director, Roel Uleners.
