Design Matters 17

27 Sep, 2017 - 28 Sep, 2017

Get inspired and have fun!

At Design Matters we bring together design practitioners from around the world for 2 days of design talks, workshops, discussions and socializing in Copenhagen.

You will meet designers from the most exciting companies, who are working with apps, websites and physical products. They will share their firsthand experiences and personal stories about working with designing experiences that connects, engages and inspires the users. Also, they will enlighten us on how they are changing the way users and digital products interact.

The Theme

Design Matters is about New movements in Digital Design. At the conference, we look into what shapes the future digital experiences and, how we as designers are working to do so.

Currently, we are defining the topics for Design Matters 2017. To do so, we are working with the ‘Design Matters Committee’, where designers from Instagram, MailChimp, Slack, BBC and Microsoft are helping us identify the most interesting trends, topics and “The next new”. The themes for 2017 will be announced as we come closer to the event.

Workshops & Design Salons/strong>

Besides the talks, Design Matters also host workshops and Design Salons.

At the workshops you will get a chance to work together with the other participants. The workshops aim to challenge the way of thinking as designer and trying out methods or techniques that you can use in your daily work.

The Design Salons are discussion sessions, where a moderated interview of the most interesting speakers will take place and you will get to ask all your questions in an open and relaxed atmosphere.

The Start-up Scene

The local startup scene is always present at Design Matters. We strive to show the most happening nordic startups and initiatives that shapes the design of tomorrow. Therefore, we invite a handful local startups to talk about designing for entirely new products.

The socializing and fun side Activities

The Design Matters venue is sprawling with designers, VR machines, sketchers and a lot of other happenings – so the breaks are never boring.

Also, we treat the participants with good music and drinks after the first day – because they deserve it. And don’t miss the official conference dinner, where you’ll get a chance to meet the speakers and participants a cosy atmosphere.

Also, see Design Matters 16 and Design Matters 15.
