Collection No 1
We've got frogs in ponds all over the world. Here are just a few exciting recent and upcoming talks and conferences that feature influential frogs at large.
April 9 – 11: Thomas Sutton, Vice President of Design, delivered the keynote “Value-based Design: Pushing the Limits of Design in Complex Socio-Technical Systems” at the DMI conference in Bonn. Using examples from this work, his keynote session outlined the emerging practice of Value-Based Design. It is a framework that recognizes that when designing for complex service domains, focusing on individual users is a necessary but insufficient condition for achieving meaningful innovation. To innovate in socio-technical systems, we need to think about value creation from multiple perspectives, drawing on a toolkit that extends well beyond classical user-centered design.
