Fixing Broken Business Models by Design
Valentijn Destoop | Wonderland
We live in a time of new business models, exponential technologies and digital native customers. Businesses are being challenged and looking for innovation. Some designers who design products and services today are the creators of new organisations and businesses tomorrow. Let me share some of the new vocabulary and colourful toolsets you’ll encounter in the future.
As a UX-expert and creative director Valentijn co-founded the digital product-design studio Little Miss Robot. In 2014 he co-founded Wonderland where he helps companies explore new opportunities with design-led innovation and business-prototyping in a time of digital transformation.
Design Systems and Asset Management
Stephen Verhalleman | Yelp
Working for a big product like Yelp comes with his own set of challenges and opportunities related to workflows, visual design and asset management. I’ll cover the lessons learnt by introducing a scalable visual asset system and how it impacts the user experience and branding of the product. In doing so I’ll touch on topics like implementation strategy, delightfulness and style guides. I will also share my personal experience in working from San Francisco and moving back to working remote.
Stephen is a Belgian designer working for Yelp in San Francisco. Before taking the great leap across the ocean, he led the design team at Wijs where he worked with clients like Humo, Vedett, Bru, City of Ghent & Antwerp.
