Sydney | Andy Polaine | Fjord | The Future of Design Ethics

In the desire to have a seat at the table of big business, many designers have worked hard to bundle their approach to perceiving and changing the world in to a neat, saleable package. But now design has earned a seat at the table, what should we do with it? Is this common question the wrong way around? The rise of design thinking has seen the commodification of design in the business world, but has business earned a seat at the design table? Do they have the organizational maturity to launch and sustain a culture of design and is business a table design should want a seat at? Maybe we all need to be at a bring-and-share picnic.

Join us with Andy Polaine, designer, author and Regional Design Director for APAC at Fjord to unpack these issues as part of our global series exploring The Future of Design Ethics.
