There is an explosion of new technology today. A pervasiveness of screens. An abundance of content and experiences. But rare is the technology that blends seamlessly into our lives — even enhances our humanity. We believe technology has more potential.

As technology becomes embedded and ubiquitous, there’s a new and important role for designers and brands: to humanise the interface between technology and people. To design respectfully and considerately. To create technology that makes us feel more human, not less. 

Join VP & Executive Creative Director, R/GA New York, Mike Rigby, as he shares D&AD White Pencil winning project: Love Has No Labels and Cannes Award-winning projects Owlet and Alvio.

Following Mike’s presentation; Matt Leach from Australian Design Radio (ADR) will moderate a panel which includes: Tarra van Amerongen, Design Director at Fjord, Bohdi Lewis, Head of Digital Strategy & Innovation at Havas Australia, Jai Mitchell, Product Designer & Strategist at Josephmark and Ash Donaldson, Behaviour Designer & Innovation Director at Tobias & Tobias who will delve deeper into the topic: redefining what it means to be human in this age of technology.
