Hey everyone 👋 we've scheduled this event is a bit later in the month than usual but you know what they say - better late than never!

We're very excited to be joined by Professor Mark Blythe (, who will be talking to us about Design Fiction.

We live in fictional times using technologies imagined by H.G Wells, Gene Rodenberry and Charlie Brooker. Designers are now drawing on the techniques of writers and film makers to present products and services that don’t quite exist yet.

About Mark...

"Mark is a design ethnographer working in the field of Human Computer Interaction. His research is concerned with the digital revolution we are stumbling and tumbling through and how this changes the ways we live, work, make art and grow old. He likes to write about himself in the third person, like Caesar."
