Simon Widmer

Simon is the Design Network and Creative Lead in the circular design programme of the Ellen MacArthur Foundation. He believes in the creative power of design and our ability to shape products, services and systems with intention. From the clothes we wear to the buildings we live and work in, to systems that deliver food and mobility - all has been designed and is either fit for a model that is regenerative and can work in the long-term, or for a linear and extractive model.

How Soon is Now? Designing Change

 

The Society for Experiential Graphic Design (SEGD) brought together multidisciplinary designers from around the world for the first comprehensive and virtual multi-day event dedicated to exhibition and experience design. This series, entitled How Soon Is Now? Designing Change, focused on the current state of museum design processes and practices, and will examine how designers, storytellers and artists create experiences in the physical and virtual realms for audiences of varied backgrounds, ethnicities, abilities, and ages.
