2017 Footprint Xchange Series


“It was great being part of such a dynamic and interesting group. To be able to discuss how we make connections through design with an audience is something that I am very proud to be part of. It is awesome to have spaces in which the knowledge and experience of everyone can be explored.”

The Value of Design

Design is in everything. Is its value recognised?

In 2017 Footprint Xchange is exploring and debating these provocations across a series of three facilitated events. Partnering with leading thinkers from the world of advertising, theatre, immersive, branding and retail, with the Society of British Theatre Designers puts Footprint Xchange at the forefront of the debate.

June saw Xchange return to the Lyric, Hammersmith to explore Left Brain, Right Brain, an event to ensure the recognition of design, and the unique way that designers work.  We were delighted to host design luminaries including Pippa Nissen, Jim Rokos and Ab Rogers, alongside Stephen Miller from Design council putting it all in economic perspective.

“ I thought the event was brilliant, it was so interesting and definitely got my creative juices flowing. Thank you for holding such a great event. I look forward to coming to see another.”

Merlin Entertainments, Attendee

The 2017 series had already got off to a great start, when in March we explored Who are the Storytellers Now. With attendees from the worlds of retail, theatre, design and events we heard from leading experts in the field including Jim Whyte, Tupac Martir and Marcus Romer. We looked at the role of Design and how and why it communicates with an audience.

“Footprint have extended themselves into a progressive world of possibilities. One where we question the identity and importance of the designer and artist.”
