Just when balance is achieved, someone tries to make “Should designers learn to code?” happen.

Yet, as the recent history of app and web design has intimated, you could understandably think that as a design movement, much of digital design remains superficial in light of the increasingly intertwined systems we’re designing for. Somewhere between tech fetishisation and death by post it notes, there’s a chance to apply the lessons from product design movements of the past and incorporate a deeper understanding of the digital material into the way we work.

This talk will go into the problematics of design thinking and our day-to-day processes, the need for ‘deep co-design’ with users and communities, why every UX designer needs a Solution Architect as a best friend, and why you’re so missing the point about Brutalist design for the web.
