2013, Goa India


Aug 29 - Aug 31

"Create Change" was the theme for 2013. The spotlight was on these two powerful words. Speakers from across the world, including Imaginary Forces' Karin Fong, Fitch's Tim Greenhalgh and many more, spoke about design as a tool to create real change. The aim was to push the envelope and challenge creative professionals to use design to "create change", beyond the aesthetic.
