Great design is everywhere. In a world that’s gone digital its impact is vast. The types of systems and designs we create are no longer only for a small group of early adopters, but have changed the way we live our lives. Our creations have begun to shift and define societal norms so isn’t it time we ask ourselves whether we like this digital world that we’ve helped to create? If we aren’t satisfied with the implications we should be talking about what we can do to effect or alter its course. In this session our speaker Lis Hubert will discuss the impact of our design work in today’s digital world and foster discussion. Attendees should look to leave with a new awareness, opinions and ideas on how to change the future.
