Design is partly to blame for an overabundance of products in our lives. But it can also offer solutions. This talk explores how designers and brands can actually make a difference.
Sustainability is a complex topic for users, designers, brands and policymakers alike. Can you scale up production and remain sustainable? How can brands actually make a difference? What can smaller studios learn from bigger companies and vice versa? How can we reduce waste and promote more meaningful object relationships? How can we make frugality cool?
