Creative Director Wyn Jones and Designer Jordan Burns discuss "What is industrial design?"

The ‘Bangor Design Conference’ is an annual event held at Bangor University’s innovation and arts centre. The conference hosts some of the leading professionals in the design industry, who give talks that explore the design industry as a whole; speakers in the past have come from companies such as Unilever, Wacom, PDR and the Royal Society of Arts, which highlights how the event is attracting the best in class from around the design industry.

This year Design Reality was invited to present at the conference and gladly accepted the opportunity with open arms. Creative Director Wyn Jones and Designer Jordan Burns represented the North Wales Design firm, as they addressed an anticipated audience eager to gain professional industry insight.

The topic of on the agenda covered the title “What is industrial design?” while also breaking down the design process into its most basic elements, and explaining Design Reality’s approach to design. The duo also showcased some of Design Reality’s most acclaimed case study projects and provided a unique look into life of a designer working at Design Reality today.

Jordan Burns commented that “It was a pleasure to re-visit the institution which helped to develop me as an Industrial designer and keen observer of all things design. Personally it is great to be able to give something back to Bangor University and hopefully inspire other students to realise their aims of making it within the design industry”

Following the conference both Jordan and Wyn were invited to view the opening of the Product Design Degree Show, held in Pontio’s White Box venue. The degree show gave the students a chance to showcase their best work, promoting the standard of work coming from Bangor, with some interesting projects on show.
