The Design 100 - 13 Feb

2015 kick-off tour

From 22nd Feb to 14th Mar I'll be visiting SFO, CHI, NYC, LON and HKG. As part of the 2015 kick-off tour we'll be hosting Design Drinks, an opportunity to meet advisory panel members, meet other designers and catch up with some folks who you haven't seen for a while.

Details will start to appear on  from 17th Feb.

This year's calendar is crazy - I get scared when I look at the program of activities. Every month until January we've got events, awards programs, content features, forums and touring showcases happening.

I was asked for an elevator pitch the other day, my answer was "we're a community of over 26,000 design professionals collaborating to grow design demand". 

From this a long conversation continues, so if anyone asks you, I'd suggest you use that. 

Increased demand for design services, products and education means that design professionals are in a growing industry and businesses that consume design are using the most effective, proven and understood method to accelerate transformation - design.

It's shaping up to be a huge year, get involved, come and have a drink or get in touch via email.

Below we're highlighting the current opportunities to get involved this month as well as a range of events. We're scouting input for our forthcoming Bank/Insurance Design and Wearable Tech features - looking forward to getting your contributions.

Richard Branson answers why invest so much effort in design?

Designers can impact the financial performance of a company. Fast Company - Mark Wilson


REA Group: When we entered the awards, our mobile apps had been downloaded over 1.2 million times (now over 2 million!) and our latest updates had received great feedback from consumers. The awards were an opportunity for our apps to be recognised by the people who use them as well as the broader mobile industry. As you can imagine, we were pretty chuffed to win a Mobie and kudos goes to our project team who created the winning iPhone and iPad universal app.

John Douglas, JDA Architects."JDA Architects were delighted to recieve a Melbourne Design Award for our Imaging at Olympic Park fitout. In particular we valued the recognition through a broader design community than from just within our own profession. The fact that the Melbourne Design Awards covered such a variety of design disciplines helped make the programme a worthwhile statement about the state of design in Melbourne, and to be an award winner in such company is very rewarding. Further our clients are thrilled to bits and now proudly display their copy of the award at their centre."
