The brave new brand world

Where once brand purpose was little more than a line in a mission statement, it’s now key to consumer choice. What does this mean for the relationship between consumers and brands, and how can design improve it? How can companies define and realise their brand purpose, and where do innovation and new technologies fit in?

Delivering the end product

Modern design is always a work in progress. It can be complex, chaotic and subject to constant change. Navigating the product cycle from conception to shipping is fraught with problems, challenges and unknown unknowns. Hear from industry experts and product leaders for perspectives and best practices on how to successfully deliver world class technology.

UI & UX in Web3

Never before has humanity spent so much time in virtual environments. Possibilities in the metaverse and Web3 abound. But what have been the major aesthetic shifts from app designers and content creators, and how has user behaviour changed? What trends are we seeing in UX and UI design in 2023 and beyond?

Next-gen design tools

The barriers to entry into the design industry are gradually being lowered. The focus is shifting from ‘how’ we create to ‘what’ we create. Specialist work which once took hours now takes only minutes. It’s an exciting time for creatives, leaving them with more freedom to focus on the big ideas rather than a single process. Find out what will become the ‘can’t live without’ design tool for 2023.
