In-house Council

In-house Council

A meetup and panel discussion addressing the unique challenges and opportunities of in-house design.

This first installment, hosted by the Republic Wireless in-house design team, will focus on 3 topics:

  1. Collaboration
    How do you infuse design into all aspects of your start-up? How do you get included in the conversation when design is seen as non-critical by the organisation? How do you march to the beat of the rest of the teams so that you actually end up solving people's problems?

  2. Creativity
    Traditionally agencies have been seen as the "sexy" go-to places for designers. What challenges do in-house design teams face in keeping the creative juices pumping when working with one client (themselves)?

  3. Profile
    In an industry led by big ideas and brilliant engineers, how does design get a seat at the table when it comes to what is being built and how?
