Talk Topic: Changing our Relationship with Tech – Do we Have a Responsibility as Designers?
Spencer Conway is Head of Digital and Immersive at The Moment. With almost 20 years’ experience as a digital creative, Spencer looks after The Moment digital team who provide a range of creative, design and development services. He is tasked with the creative direction of all mobile, web, VR and interactive outputs and is passionate about making beautifully crafted user experiences that entertain and engage.
Spencer first started out as a designer for Coley Porter Bell and has worked with some great brands along the way – BBC, Dulux, HBO, Chanel, British Gas, Wrigleys, Toyota, British Airways, Ballantines and Danepak.Every part of work and home lives is saturated with tech. But we’re no longer in control, our personal data has become currency and humans have become completely co-dependent on digital services. You could say that the inherent ‘design’ of social networks and online services is to encourage re-use, to reward addictive behaviour, to craft experiences that never end. In his talk, Spencer will discuss if we have a responsibility as designers to change this and to help create a world where humans have a better, more positive relationship with tech.
