PRIMER isn’t your typical design conference. It’s a conference focused solely on Speculative Design. Speculative Design may include many other categories such as design fiction, critical design, discursive design. You’re likely to hear presentations on emerging technologies such as autonomous cars, biotech, synthetic biology, emerging economies, social/cultural/environmental impact, design ethics, and business strategy and foresight.
PRIMER’s aim is to highlight important topics that provoke a design response but to also inspire thinkers and makers to use futures design thinking as a method to develop new agendas for communities, businesses, and governments to strategize and align themselves economically and sustainably for the future as it arrives.
