Under the influence of advancements in technology, heightened social and environmental turbulence, a revolution in media and a seismic recasting of business and commerce, design and the design industry is staring down the barrel of some monumental change. What threats and opportunities do these changes represent – today, tomorrow and over the next 20 years.

The 2019 instalment of hugely popular AGDA Design Means Business event series, Design Shift will see five industry professionals working in the vanguard of design, strategy, media, and social innovation, share their view on the future of the design industry. With dedicated time for an in-depth Q and A session, this is a chance to join in a stimulating discussion about the impacts facing today’s design industry and how we can better prepare for the shift and embrace the changes.
