Design CANTEEN discussion – On how to get into the media
10:00 Zlín castle Free entry

Getting into relevant media can be the right kick-start to a designer’s career. How do Czech designers manage to establish media collaborations? Bára Alex Kašparová, editor-in-chief of the monthly magazine Artikl, and Eva Slunečková, editor-in-chief of Elle Decorations, will share practical tips on how to do it.

Design CANTEEN  is moving its podcast studio to Zlin Design Week. Several episodes will be recorded live throughout the week and you can be there. The aim is to show multiple points of view on one topic, so the episodes are in the form of panel discussions. And what would a canteen be without coffee and something good to go with it.

Workshop – The impact of ethics on service and product design
13:00 Zlín castle Registration via GoOut

Good design delivers results. Excellent design delivers them while doing no harm. Anyone who strives for excellence needs to adopt a habit of asking themselves the question, “Who might get harmed by our decisions before we enact them?” In order to develop this habit, we need to turn design thinking on its head. Instead of reducing complexity, we need to embrace it by respecting the needs of end users as well as everyone else who is impacted by the product or service throughout its lifecycle. This workshop is open to anybody (regardless of their professional title or affiliation) who wants to know what it takes to consider the potentially harmful consequences of a decision. We will explore the topic in a playful way, using two specialized card games – The Thing From The Future and Moral Agent. The whole workshop will be led by designers from the organisation Pábení.

Realized projects are sometimes more than a thousand words. But do Czech designers know how to present their work and their skills? Jan Jůza, marketing director of mmcité, and Pepa Kocourek, dean of the Faculty of Multimedia Communications, will judge. Both of them work on the border between design and communication. While Janza will bring the perspective of a company that works with young designers and employs them, Pepa will represent the institution that takes care of their education. Together, they will discuss whether young designers can sell their work and how they compare to their counterparts abroad.

Design CANTEEN is moving its podcast studio to Zlin Design Week. Several episodes will be recorded live throughout the week and you can be there. The aim is to show multiple points of view on one topic, so the episodes are in the form of panel discussions. And what would a canteen be without coffee and something good to go with it.
