KODW 2020 – Designing Digital Futures for the New Normal

Covid-19 forces businesses and societies to Reset, Rethink and Re-invent. Good Design must be focused on human and user needs and what really matters. As we re-strategise in the new normal, Design Thinking matters more than ever.

Knowledge of Design Week (KODW), organized by the Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC), gathers over 40 forward-thinking leaders and innovators to share insights and inspirations on how best to prepare for the new normal. In the digital era, creation of new possibilities needs new visions, a creative mindset and new knowledge for impactful and meaningful outcomes.

Learning across disciplines is vital. Be part of the KODW community and join the programme with over 15 virtual thematic sessions and interactive workshops.
