Making sense of a rapidly changing industry
Tools, frameworks, automation: what value do they offer, and how will they alter the way digital experiences form? Will you be essential or expendable? Did design sleep in while everyone else got busy defining a new rulebook for our industry?
Let's talk about designing smarter and explore ways to navigate a shifting landscape. Let's consider labour and ethics, education and inclusivity, the disappearance of weirdness and fun. Let's reconvene, recalibrate, and re-energise digital design.
So much more than just a conference.
Dates are accurate but exact times may change. We just want to help you plan your trip.
“We absolutely loved it from start to finish. Everything about the day exceeded any expectations that we had, and we came away from this amazing event with heads full of exciting ideas and a heap of new industry friends.”
—Ian Harris, Carron Media

Take a look at our previous events
New Adventures began as a trilogy of events between 2011–2013, designed to encourage debate and move digital design forward. Carefully curated, we ensured our speakers became part of each event’s narrative. We attracted world-renowned speakers to Nottingham, including Jessica Hische, Jason Santa Maria, Wayne Hemingway, Dan Mall, Frank Chimero, Veerle Pieters, and Brendan Dawes. We also supported new voices from our main stage and fringe events. Many took NA to their hearts and considered it the best event they ever attended. More →
