Synopsis

It’s been nearly thirty years since the birth of the web and in that time our role as designers has changed dramatically.

In the 90s we designed for a desktop context, focused primarily on standalone experiences. A decade ago, with the launch of the iPhone, our remit expanded, embracing the challenge of designing for both desktop and mobile contexts. The recent emergence of a ‘connected landscape’ has transformed our industry once again. The challenge we now face as designers is to build ‘connected ecosystems’, considering: hardware and software; desktop and mobile; web and native….

As we race headlong into the future, I’ll explore the exciting opportunities ahead for designers working in a connected culture, identifying core principles we can embrace to keep up with the ever-shifting digital landscape.
