Design know-how for a new era

A two-day conference exploring what designers need to know for the future.

Design is changing as it adapts to a world in transition. It has expanded into new terrain like art, business, strategy and public services, and the boundaries between disciplines are blurring. As design changes so do the skill-sets needed to practice it.

Intersections will look at how designers from different disciplines are adapting to this new landscape and acquiring new know-how. Ground-breaking designers will tell stories about what they have learned lately, what they expect to learn next, and why. The conference will feature lively debate between path-finding designers and thinkers with different views on how designers should prepare for the future. Reserve your place now.
