Zacchini will analyze how the role of the designer has become increasingly fundamental, from agile startups like Squarespace to larger companies like Google.
Our guest speaker will also discuss how design can influence the product through collaborations between different disciplines, analyzing how the different design trends can influence not only technology but also society, culture, ethics … and our future in general.
