Webinar - How is design changing & what are the upcoming trends?

Interactions - future design trends

Tuesday 12 July • 12:00 to 13:00 (BST) • Online

How is design changing & what are the upcoming trends?

Design is constantly evolving, and as designers it can be difficult to keep afresh with the latest trends. In this special Interactions session, we’ll be looking at exactly that – what is changing in the design world and what do we see as future trends for design. 

Although it’s hard to predict what will happen in the future, we can start to identify some key patterns and topics which are being discussed in the community, and by those who are leading the way in the world of design.

Join us for this webinar with leading design experts, to explore the evolution and trends of what is upcoming in the world of design – both in the present and in the future. Each with cross-sector experience, including retail, government, entertainment, and technology, this session should give design professionals an insight into where we should be focusing and what we might be looking at next. 

Tuesday 12th July | 12:00 – 13:00
