Dan Harden Selected to Judge America By Design

June 9, 2021

The popular By Design primetime series has expanded into a nationwide search for the year’s most groundbreaking innovation in the new series America by Design. In keeping with the format of California by Design which aired last year on CBS, America By Design examines over 35 projects in a range of unique industries. This year, however, entrepreneurs across the entire US were invited to compete.

The show’s panel of prestigious judges consists of design luminaries, founders, and educators, and features Whipsaw CEO and Principal Designer Dan Harden. Together, they will analyze the user experience of each design and evaluate their inventiveness, form, function, aesthetic, and ability to solve a fundamental market problem.

This season of By Design reveals the process and impact of good design. Experience the future of design in a series where one lucky entrepreneur will walk with the title “America’s Top Innovation.”


“This show gives people a little more understanding of what this world is all about. It provides enlightenment to viewers, which connects to my philosophy of giving back to people.”

—Dan Harden.
