Announced speakers

Dr Kate Stone
PhD exam in physics, University of Cambridge, and founder of the company Novalia

TBA

Bloomberg has predicted that Dr Kate Stone is going to shake up the world as we know it - in short, she's a game changer. 

With a degree in Electronics and a PhD in Physics from Cambridge University; she founded the award winning lab Novalia to explore the space where traditional print and conventional electronics converge, and has been living in that world ever since. 

Some people expect the future to look like the film Minority Report, but Dr Kate Stone believes the opposite - she wants to infuse our current analogue world with electronics so that everything looks like it always has.... except that it can come alive through interaction. Imagine a world where a teenager’s bedroom poster comes to life with the launch of a new album, or an LP that enables you to DJ from the actual record sleeve itself, or a notebook that actually plays musical notes? This is the world Dr Kate Stone is creating - by adding 'digital soul' to everyday flat surfaces that we take for granted, she is changing the world as we know it. 

Using her patented interactive print Dr Kate Stone is adding interaction and capacitive touch to everything from hats and mandalas through to packaging and books - and connecting them to the internet, she is creating a new frontier for traditional industries that we already know and love, and who until now have been locked out of the technology age.

Danger Dave
Artist at Cool Shit

TBA

Hungry Castle is the Internet in real life. They actively work to make Cool Shit playful, public, polarizing and pop. The goal of the fashion and art studio has always been to make big, playful things of cultural impact and use design thinking in a way that truly engages people. 

They're the creators of MR POOPIE - a giant inflatable poop emoji that makes icecream, LASER CAT - an epic cat that projects art through its laser beam eyes and LIONEL RICHIE'S HEAD - a giant inflatable sculpture of Lionel Richie's Head, just to name a few of their art pieces. Their work has been exhibited in New York, Miami Beach, London and Paris.

Remotely Possible: What Trello is Learning about Distributed Work

Distributed collaboration is a foundational competency in modern teams. At Trello, the majority of the team works from home offices. Like many design and product teams we are not just creating a product, we’re simultaneously refining a process for making product. For us that means exploring better ways to collaborate on design as a distributed team. We’ve been exploring various collaboration exercises from design sprints to critiques to problem framing, but doing those all remotely. Chris will share insights and best practices for product and design professionals facing or considering similar challenges.

From 2D to 3D: How Web Designers Can Get Started in AR/VR

AR/VR/3D design is becoming ever more relevant in tech, but making the transition from web/mobile design can be daunting - as I recently learned when I made the switch myself! In this talk I’ll cover what AR/VR/3D design actually is, what skills designers need to know (like 3D modeling, Unity development, and more), and how to learn them. You’ll walk away with a clear idea of how to develop all the skills you need to take part in this exciting field.
