Well once again the team headed down to Brighton for dConstruct 2011, always nice when the sun is shining. After an early start we arrived at the Dome, followed swiftly by some coffees we took our seats as the conference began.
The line up was as follows: Don Norman, Kelly Goto, Frank Chimero, Bryan Rieger & Stephanie Rieger, Kevin Slavin, Matthew Sheret, Kars Alfrink, Craig Mod and Dan Hon.
The two talks that really stood out for me were: Emotional Design for the World of Objects by Don Norman and The Full Stack of Entertainment by Storytelling, Play and Code by Dan Hon.
Each of these talks really focussed on the changing way in which we interact with systems and products, and the memory we are left with as key to their success. The other key element I took away from the day was how business models are changing and evolving, our challenge will be to evolve with the needs of our clients’ changing needs.
