The shift or roles and responsibilities for designers @ UX Riga 2018

Had a great time giving a talk at the UX Riga conference on how roles and responsibilities for designers are shifting.

As the (digital) experience is becoming a ‘system’ challenge we move towards different ways of working and involving more people into the design process.

This has its effect on the skills designers need. Shifting from makers to change makers.

Great event, lovely city, wonderful people.

The merging principles of designing software and hardware

Joi Ito is being interviewed and talks about how methods for creating hardware and software are merging. We’re entering a prototyping era, where we can prototype just about anything.

Understanding manufacturing is going to be key to design, just like understanding the Internet has become key to running a company.

The interview is promotion for the Solid Conference. It pushes you to think again about the future of designing products.
