  3. “We shape our tools and our tools shape us.” As more of the tools we live with every day become digital instead of physical, our opportunity – and responsibility – as designers is multiplying. We live in a world of screens, and we are the ones who decide what goes on them. We are in a unique position to have an impact – one that lasts longer than the next redesign or the latest technology. What happens when we stop thinking of ourselves not just as developers or experience designers, and take up the mantle as a new generation of product designers for a digital world?

  5. As companies evolve away from 20th century product thinking to a 21st century service mindset, it's important that design organizations evolve with them. In this talk, Peter will present a new hybrid model for how design can integrate with the rest of the organization, where all design (marketing and product/service) is centralized as a function, and design teams partner in a deep, committed way across the business.

    This new model takes advantage of an important and under-appreciated aspect of design--since it takes relatively few designers to keep larger teams busy, design can be a highly leveraged function, and a small team can have an outsized impact.
