"The most innovative companies in the world share one thing in common. They use design as an integrative resource to innovate more efficiently and successfully."
"Due to the remarkable success rate of design-led companies, design has evolved beyond making objects and simple visual communication. Organizations now want to learn how to think like designers, and apply design principles to the business strategy."
Learn how design can help you innovate and outsmart the competition to build a more successful business.
Join us for a full day of inspiring presentations and interactive sessions to discover different ways in which design can help you innovate: design thinking, service design, experience design, product design, co-design and design funding.
Wake Up Design will give you an insight into how designers think and solve problems and an opportunity to network and consult your projects.
