DESIGN HOTELS & The Future Laboratory trend briefing


The next ten years will bring a seismic shift in the way we live, work, travel and communicate. Leading emerging states such as China, India, Brazil and Turkey are playing an increasingly significant role in global politics and business. The Internet connects consumer communities across the globe, bringing us
from an age of mass media into one that is defined by customization. Consumers forego standardized offers and search for curated experiences and adventures.
Brands that do not respond to these and other gamechanging developments will fail. Standing still is not an option. The Future Laboratory is one of Europe’s foremost brand strategy, consumer insight and trends research consultancies.

Their approach is simple:
to identify the trends that matter, the consumers that count and the ideas, insights and innovations that will shape the years to come. In their presentation
co-founders Chris Sanderson and Martin Raymond will attempt to draw a roadmap into an uncertain future.

International Conference on Typography


The Association of Designers of the Region of Valencia (ADCV) is organising 5th International Conference on Typography. Under the title "Beyond the Ink" and during three days, the Conference will hold exhibitions, lectures, workshops and scientific presentations to give new answers to the technological changes that have driven a revolution in typography. Since Macintosh made its appearance in 1984 many things have changed for typography. Computer tools have revolutionized typographic practice and the emergence of Internet
has had a significant impact at other levels no less important. This has led to the
emergence of a new field of graphic design, web design, in which typography is still in its infancy. Also other platforms like mobile devices, which are opening other areas to colonize and posing new challenges, including the possibilities of reading that ebook offers. At the same time, some means such film or television screen that, since virtually its origins were a place for the letter, are evolving and expanding their language. 5th Conference on Typography will deal these issues and many more about how to address the use and creation of typography in a new context subjected to constant technological transformation.
