Event Details

Hyper Island + Made By Many. 
What skills will designers of the future need?
Find out on Thursday 6th August at 6.30pm


Jonathan Ive, Apple's head designer recently mentioned that he struggled to hire young staff as "schools are failing to teach them how to make products." It shifts the focus onto the gap between education and design, particularly towards the skills and attributes that the designers of the future will need. In our next Hyper Island Studio, we will explore how we can develop designers who will create new types of value for both businesses and customers. 


Our event will be a collaborative workshop led by Lauren Currie and Tom White. Lauren is the co-founder of Scotland's leading service design agency Snook and now programme leader at Hyper Island and Tom is the Senior Designer at Made by Many. You'll get to explore the skills we believe the designers of the future will need and put them into practice. In partnership with Made by Many you'll get a taste of the tools we use during the MA Digital Experience Design and as a team have the chance to ideate, prioritise, prototype and test your ideas.

We'll introduce you to tools you can apply towards work or study, such as: 

  • Insight Gathering
  • Rapid Prototyping
  • Creative Problem Solving

What can I expect?
This Studio will focus on the big question we are asking ourselves: How can we create designers of the future? This event is for you if you're curious to find out more about Hyper Island and what we do. We work closely with our industry partners to discuss, develop, challenge and debate current and relevant topics in the digital world.
