Subtitle: A Gathering of Creative Minds for a World in Flux - Discussing Challenges and Opportunities in Design, Manufacturing, and Entertainment Industries
Yesterday, our team at Oclas Consulting had the incredible opportunity to attend the Bloomberg Design + Make event in London, where some of the world's most creative minds gathered to discuss the challenges and opportunities in their respective industries. The event proved to be an insightful and inspiring experience, fostering connections and potential collaborations for our company.
An interesting aspect of the event was the discussion on the impact of AI on the workforce across various sectors. The integration of AI technologies is expected to cause a significant shift, driving innovation and efficiency in the design, manufacturing, and entertainment industries.
Among the esteemed speakers were Miranda MacLaren (Director, Morris+Company), Ged Simmonds (Managing Director, Offices, Mace), Marcus Engman (Chief Creative Officer, Ingka Group), Andu Masebo (Designer and Creative Producer), Mike McGee (Chief Creative Officer, Framestore), and Michael Jones (Senior Partner, Foster + Partners).
Each speaker offered unique perspectives on their industry's current state and future. For instance, Marcus Engman from Ingka Group shared insights on how they are prioritising sustainability and circular design in their products, while Mike McGee from Framestore discussed the role of technology in shaping the future of entertainment. Some other key takeaways from the event (#DesignMake) included:
Leveraging the diversity of London, particularly in creativity, was also highlighted by Marcus.
The event featured a mention of "1899," a movie made during the lockdown.
It was noted that 50% of the waste in the UK comes from construction.
Standardising processes and making them more repeatable was suggested as a way to improve efficiency in the manufacturing industry.
