2021’s Insights introduction

Back

As product designers and innovators, we create solutions to solve problems. We aim to deliver user-focused solutions that will have a positive impact. 2020 is a year that created many problems which impacted people and our planet greatly and we believe it will be regarded as the “catalytic year” - it accelerated change. Design is the main tool to be wielded when there is change, it is the tool that is used to manage a problem’s impact and deliver solutions in a format that people can understand and implement.

The three major events of 2020 that will demand        change going forward are climate change, the            pandemic and the political response to those two.

 

These three events have forced society to adapt, and it must be design led solutions that will help people and planet adapt efficiently and make a better future.

But changes happen every year, and we must adapt all the time so why is 2020 the catalytic year?

Because there is also a convergence in both thinking and technology that will underpin these design          solutions.

 

Technology was there to make most solutions feasible prior to 2020, but now economics and public adoption have enabled technological solutions to become mainstream. This shows that politics can enable amazing leaps in developing technological solutions - a vaccine to a global pandemic within a year, no one would have said that is possible before 2020.


As we kick off 2021 we see increased innovation in green tech, the continued roll-out of 5G, and we have left the European Union. Development tools in sharing ideas, working collaboratively, and test marketing have now become well refined for teams working at distance. Their barriers to adoption have gone. With 5G their use will be quicker and slicker, with their widespread implementation being supported by the government which is fuelling investor participation.

Our Design Insights for 2021 look at these big topics and sieve out the innovations that will meet the challenges we face going forward and make the world a better place.
