One example that was brought to the front was the giant impact Pokemon Go had on the world for a few months.

CicLAvia is a fun non-profit driven to show all of LA’s fantastic communities. The events are a place to get together and enjoy vibrant public spaces with car-free streets by walking, skateboarding and bike riding, and everything in between. You are encouraged to explore with friends, family, or by yourself to create long-lasting memories. CicLAvia Came to IxD with several different lenses to focus on. We received the physical lens which was a focus on creating a more dynamic space for sponsors and partners.
