(location change: SDG Solution Space)
There is a dual trend unfolding right before our eyes. Three fields are maturing and growing up. And at the some time, converging. We will explore what this means for the future of projects and careers.

User experience design, user interface graphic design, and frontend development have evolved a lot in the past 20 years. In the early days of the internet, one person did all three. But as systems and digital technologies got more complex, each field expanded and grew, even specialized. Now, with new tools and changing expectations, the fields seem to be merging once again. What's really happening here?

We will attempt to answer this question by looking at some projects, and having a panel discussion with experts from all domains.

UX - Beata Koscierzynska
Beata has over 10 years experience as a user experience designer and business analyst for various sectors and companies. She passionately combines private and public sector experience, and recently completed digital transformation projects for WIPO.
She will share her experience working across different environments, specifically through a case study of Poland's leading bank PKO BP, to illustrate cross-functional cooperation between designers and IT.

Frontend development - Lena Chandelier
Lena brings a developer perspective, and will explain how she raised awareness on digital accessibility among designer and UXers, and how they deliver more successful projects by working together.
Graduated from IGS at Lyon, Lena currently works at Essencedesign. Passionate about accessibility and curious about new technologies, she is active in PHP, HTML5, CSS3, Sass/Compass, Gulp, etc.

UI & frontend - Isobar Team
Isobar is a global agency network that delivers digital transformation, powered by creativity. They will present collaboration between disciplines when creating the diver experience website for Ulysse Nardin, which launched just a few days ago.
Isobar brings a well-rounded team to the event, lead by division manager Anthony Dupré, and featuring Romain Grossier, Clement Cheguillaume and Jeremy Brialon.
