Smashing in LEGO

You probably know the drill: 2 days, 1 single track, 13 speakers.

Both days start at 10 AM CEST (check your time), and we’ll finish around 4 PM on both days. Join us for talks, interactive sessions, followed up with a time for Q&As and discussion zones. Ah, and the best bit: on both days you can play an active role — interacting with speakers and other attendees.

Looking forward to meet you!

Want to stay updated on the latest speakers and talk topics, why not follow us on Twitter?

Our speakers rarely show slides: they show how they work — their setup, techniques and shortcuts for getting work done in live interactive sessions. So expect everything from refactoring and debugging to sketching and redesign, live. Once we have most speakers confirmed we will be releasing the schedule.

Creating Illustration Libraries

Illustrations are emerging as a vital part of the user experience of a product. They help tell your brand story, and communicate your values and brand personality. How do you create a successful illustration system, shaping a strong visual identity? How do you decide on a core set of principles?

Join us to discuss the process of creating illustration libraries as a design system. Pablo will walk us through a brief history of illustration and comics in a designer's creative journey and a look at how his art has been applied in different products.

In the end, we'll do a quick demo of an illustration library being created live to show the creation process.
