Every year Design and Flow launches and focuses on a specific contemporary theme. Our themes delve into current and complex topics with an universal scope addressing social, political, and cultural spheres. The topics we choose are subject of discussion by scholars, practitioners, industry leaders and policymakers. We use strategic design, multidisciplinary collaborations and transdisciplinary discourses to consider various design intervention and promote designers who are innovative forward thinkers. We develop and craft our themes to reflect current needs in our world and show how design can be a strategic tool for change.
