Highlights from past conferences

At our previous conference at the Design Museum we explored collaboration between UX designers and researchers. See photos on Flickr and watch some talks on YouTube.

Whilst it’s popular to talk about the latest trends, our conferences have been focusing on what we think is the most challenging part of design – communication between each other: internal company politics, presenting value of design and speaking the same language with different stakeholders.

What's On In February 2019

The theme of the conference on February 21st 2019 in London is designers and marketing: helping businesses grow. Join us and our speakers from LEGO, Canonical, Which?, Ocado, Monzo, Automattic, Condé Nast, Booking, Virgin Atlantic and others.
