Design it: Build it

A one day conference that looks at the future of the web through the theme ‘Play’.

"It was awesome to hear about some of the experiences, struggles & successes of other design teams around the world who are working on some interesting problems."

Gareth Perkins Product Designer @SchibstedGroup

What About Play?

We all know that play is an essential part of being creative, whether that is with code or typography, but what role does ‘play’ have in our work? How can we find time to build play into our busy schedules? How can playful design make the web more enjoyable and how can taking play seriously make us and our clients more successful?

Speak at DIBI!

Are you a designer or developer with something to say about ‘play’ and the future of the web? We’re now looking for speakers for Design It; Build It this November. Interested? Send us a maximum of 500 words outlining your talk by the end of July and you could be taking the stage in November.  

To pitch your talk idea, please email: jim (at)

Tell us about the story you'd like to share (it must relate to play) giving us a clear idea of what to expect from your 30 minute talk and what you'd expect delegates to learn.  

"I loved DIBI Edinburgh. It had a fantastic mix of speakers, inspiration and new ideas. I'm really glad it's returning to Newcastle"
