What do you get when you throw together an amazing film, the Brisbane design community and a little beer?
You get the Brisbane screening of Design Disruptors and it went down a treat!
After hearing the much hyped documentary from InVision had only Melbourne and Sydney screenings, our very own Felix Lee decided to rally the troops to bring Design Disruptors to Brisbane.
With the help of UQ, we filled the stunning GHD Auditorium and the InVision film did not disappoint. Covering broad strokes of design, user experience, a bit of technical knowledge and a lot of inspiration, InVision told a wonderful story about the relationship between designer and user. They even got a sneaky cameo from Papyrus font in there.
Our fav quotes from the night
“When design is embedded in a business, you arrive at a place where it just feels like oxygen.”
“Design is about every touch point a customer has with your service.”
“Design less and less for yourself and more for other people.”
“Push it until it breaks.”
Emceed by Ashleigh Thompson, the expert panel was made up of Matt Haynes from the Design Conference, Alex Nagavi from Josephmark and Dr Stephen Viller from UQ. The panel was a fantastic wrap to the evening, allowing the panelists to link back to our very own design community in Brisbane and provide insight as to how we can continue to foster the right approach to user centric design.
