Nottingham's essential digital design conference
Digital experiences are forming in new ways, requiring us to think smarter, be more efficient and collaborative. In the face of uncertainty, we must ask tough questions about labour and ethics, education and inclusivity, and rediscover ambition through weirdness and fun. Let's reconvene, recalibrate, and re-energise digital design.
Expect valuable guidance about our work, our process and serving people, framed by a packed fringe and a warm community where many friendships are forged.
We face ethical, moral, and political crises, and our work is changing. What do we want that change to be? What kind of work do we want to do?
Uncover how to build resilient, performant, accessible and beautiful structures. Jeremy is also leading a workshop: The Progressive Web
The Code Club co-founder discusses the practical methods she's used to inspire the next generation of world changers.
Reflecting on his own third culture roots, Naz explains how involving the right people helps us address global audiences.
A practical look at dismantling silos, challenging sceptics, and adjusting culture to benefit from teams without walls.
We have access to endless new tools, systems and processes, but people truly connect with universalities such as love, anger, happiness, optimism.
Change lives. Understand digital exclusion and overcome personal bias by adopting a practical research-led attitude.
The need to democratise design and creativity; to build strong relationships with other disciplines and create a culture of learning.
The best in the business helps you understand the network, prioritise assets, trick browsers, and measure performance.
Change your research mindset with this collaborative, hands on approach to understanding and defining user needs.
So much more than just a conference.
“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.”

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 Denise Jacobs. 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 →
