In this video by Dezeen, London Design Festival deputy director Max Fraser summarises the aims and key themes of this year's Global Design Forum 16-17 September 2013.

Taking place annually, The Global Design Forum is the pre-eminent thought leadership event for design bringing together key figures from across the design industry as well as those from other sectors to explore and debate the powerful and pressing issues facing design in the modern world.

The event was held at the V&A and Southbank Centre during the London Design Festival 2013 and addressed some of the most turbulent and critical areas of activity: innovation, urbanism, brand power, the character of creativity, and the realisation of the ‘Big Idea’. Over 250 delegates and 25 speakers took part, including Peter Saville, Brent Hoberman, Jamie Hayon, Ilse Crawford, Ross Lovegrove, Sir John Hegarty and Michael Young.
