Think with us

Think with us:

To celebrate Better World’s 10th year anniversary, we decided to create a different kind of conference in order to break the conversational mold and reflect upon both our organization’s history and our common future. This year’s theme, Blocks, Bytes, and Bars, uses symbols to provide an alternative method of conceiving the design process. These three objects can represent design’s traditional past, technological present, and aspirational future; however, symbolism is inherently ambiguous and therefore invites multiple interpretations. We hope that crafting the theme in this way will provide a fresh lens through which new stories, understandings and connections can emerge.
