September Lunch & Learn: Berwyn Hung

Innovation in the Era of Diversity and Inclusion
There is a lot of research out there about how diversity and inclusion can drive innovation. Having a diverse group of people in the room engaged in solving problems together can help the team see things in a new light, and see problems that they may not have realized were problems before.
Something the VCU Brandcenter is teaching is that diversity and inclusion can actually be an opportunity for creative problem solving and innovation. Helping brands – and society – find where they are coming up short with certain groups of people can lead to new possibilities of innovation and brand building.
About Berwyn Hung
Berwyn has had an interesting journey so far. He’s always been fascinated by how things work. Through the years, many items were taken apart and occasionally improved. He’s definitely a tinkerer, but his tinkering is not limited to technology. Every board game had house rules. Every object had a dual purpose. Learning the why was a constant and understanding the why became a necessity. Setting out on a path of art and self discovery brought new insights from within. From master bookmaker and printer to eastern and western paper maker, from the early days of computer programming to a focus on futurism, Berwyn is an amalgamation of very different parts into a somewhat coherent whole. He exists in the now but also looks to the future with AR eyes, constantly picturing how a new reality will affect the development of communication in our society.
He also concepts, designs and has a microtargeting system built into his vision, a 3-D rendering machine in his brain, a letterpress studio, the power to find four-plus leaf clovers and heal computers and people without touching them, as well as an overactive EM field. Don’t be surprised if he references something he’s invented in his head as something that actually exists. The two realities he lives in often are hard to tell apart
