Learn how to design the future

Enjoy a drink and learn how to use your skills as a UX designer to design for the interfaces of the future.

The first in a series of “Design the Future” events hosted by Unthink on the Academy Xi campus, explores how designers can transfer their existing skills to design for Voice User Interfaces (VUIs) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) – transitioning from visual to invisible interfaces maybe easier than you think.

Head of Service Design at Unthink, Matthew Olney will show you how to use micro-learning and other “knowledge-hacking” techniques, to adapt the UX design skills you have today to the ever changing world of technology and design.

Explore the topic of education for designers through a panel discussion with Principal Designer & Design Educator at Atlassian, Ben Crothers, Lecturer & Mentor at UTS, Ian Muir and Service Design Lead at DTA, David Berigny. Join in the debate and help answer the question: How can designers future-proof their skills for technologies that haven’t been invented yet?

Grab a drink, join the debate and shape the future of design.
