New Adventures 2020

About New Adventures 2020

New Adventures 2020 will form a clear narrative addressing significant issues facing humanity: the climate crisis and what design-minded practitioners can do about it; privilege and modern ethics; speculative design, and the ways designers can encourage conversations to serve people better, and avoid ethical catastrophes in the future. Kickstarting a new decade, this fifth adventure will explore speculative, strategic and critical design, radical inclusivity, climate and sustainability, and the perennial question of what happens next.

Colour Workflow on the Web with Geri Coady
22 Jan 2020 - 22 Jan 2020
Colour is a powerful tool that affords seemingly endless design possibilities, but we often design with only one type of colour vision in mind—our own. In this workshop, we’ll learn how to ensure that your colour choices are not only accessible to people with vision deficiencies, and we’ll dispel the myth that accessible websites suffer from boring aesthetics—we’ll learn how to make them look great.

How to Negotiate with Confidence with She Wins

As a result women can lose out on making £600,000 more over their working life(!) The ability to negotiate was identified by the World Economic Forum as one of the top ten skills you need to succeed in the modern workplace - so it is time to brush up on this essential skill.
