We had our second book launch event at Fjord‘s London office. London has always been at the forefront of design innovation, and in this case innovation in design practices. A large number of our contributors are based in the UK, and we have a particularly strong presence from the Social Design sector. We were very fortunate to have along to our launch six contributors to the book who made up our panel discussion on the night. They are: Joanna Choukier (Uscreates), Tori Flower (We Are What We Do),Dan Harris (Fjord), Lulu Kitololo (Asilia), Professor Mike Press and Andrea Siodmok. We had a great turn-out with over 50 people attending from a range of public and private organisations such as notable design agencies such as Method, Sapient Nitro and Firefly Millward Brown; multinational organisation such as Virgin Media, BT and Intel; governmental organisations like the Ministry of Justice Digital Services; representative from think tanks like Policy Connect, and universities such as Kingston University, Brighton University and Central Saint Martins. Pictures from the night can be accessed on our Flickr site and films of the talks will be published soon!
Thank you to our friends and supporters for helping us celebrate the launch of the Design Transitions book in the UK and for carrying on the conversation of where design is going.
