Frontiers Of Design
By Matthew Haynes
It is with great honour that we launch our inaugural Connect Events series with a screening of “Frontiers Of Design” — a film by Doberman.
“Frontiers Of Design” features more than 20 of the worlds best and most productive designers and design institutes. From Pentagram to Facebook, Google to Headspace, and beyond, this film both promises to introduce new design philosophies, and challenges the way we see, think and implement design.
Why are we screening the film? The core of The Design Conference is a charter to make design and design culture affordable and accessible. "Frontiers of Design" will deliver all of us some food-for-thought, and also build up a high level start of great things to come to The Design Conference: our Connect Events. Launching our new Connect Events will give each of us the chance to meet like minded creatives and share something of value on a monthly basis.
More experiential opportunities to connect with South East Queensland’s best and most well known creatives are about to come. Guess the best of all: expect to experience this all free of it charge — terms and conditions apply.

“many thanks to all of you kind people out there that has helped us make this project happen. We are forever grateful.”
Design has been recognized as a key approach to a world in flux. But the great embrace of Design, also drives great noise. Everyone talks Design. Everyone thinks Design. Anyone can design.
As part of the 20th anniversary of the design firm Doberman, The Frontiers of Design is a short film interviewing 20 influential organizations and designers about what’s next for Design. Together they form a diverse patchwork of perspectives across industries, disciplines and markets.
This is not a quest for The Answer. Because there is no holy grail. On the contrary, this is the beginning of a journey to uncover clues and spark an industry-wide dialogue about the challenges, opportunities and responsibilities at the Frontiers of Design.
Next official screening of the film will be held at The Frontiers Conference, August 31. Get your tickets at frontiers.design
