Themes & Tracks .
The 5 broad tracks we are focusing on for 2019 (as always, our over-arching theme remains Design-In-Tech)
Master aims to showcase case-studies, hacks, learnings and work from those who are steps ahead in the journey to mastering skills, processes, systems, methods.
Interweave examines seams & overlaps between design-in-tech & multiple fields. The spotlight is on how design+tech weaves with specialisations to co-create unique solutions.
Unfold is future focused – how do products/services emerge, get shaped – through individual visions and collaborative effort. How we assess risks, scenarios? Speculate, prototype, pivot, change?
Plural continues from 2018’s inclusion & participation track – assimilating diverse voices, under-represented perspectives. From challenging post-colonial narratives to understanding asymmetries.
Data X Design
Data x Design explores how data influences product design & development, builds empathy, shows gaps, helps in evolution and continuous improvement.
