Ian attends Design Strategy WorkshopSeptember 2015

As part of Scintilla’s commitment to continuous development for the benefit of our clients, Ian attended a workshop at the prestigious Illinois Institute of Technology (IIT) located in Chicago (the same institution where architect Ludwig Mies van der Rohe taught). The workshop, attended by participants from London, Australia, Africa and of course the USA, delivered theoretical knowledge and its practical application in the areas of integrating design and business strategy, design value and design management. “The workshop was inspiring and with participants from different backgrounds and industries enabled different perspectives to be appreciated”, says Scintilla Director, Ian Johnson. The material presented enables Scintilla to deliver greater insights and benefits for current trends and its application to product design to our clients.
