Back to Basics - What is Design?

We’ve all stared at eye-catching packaging, a curious piece of furniture, or the layout of a stunning room and wondered, perhaps aloud: what is design, really? And why does it even matter? The Design Society attempts to answer these questions and more as they walk you through the fundamentals of design and the principles behind the practice. Led by experts from branding, graphic design, and architecture, come hear Larry Peh from &Larry; Ong Ker-Shing from Lekker Architects; and Izyanti Asa'ari and Iffah Dahiyah from Fellow discuss how design not only adds value to businesses, but ultimately betters our everyday lives. This talk is great for industry practitioners and casual curious cats alike who want to explore the what, why, and how of design.
