We’re absolutely delighted that Sally Augustin, psychologist and principal from US-based Design with Science, will be speaking on Culture-Right Design, at the Workplace Trends Conference on 18 October.
Sally writes: “Cognitive science research makes it clear: people from different cultures work and live best in different sorts of spaces. This session will detail research-based insights designers can use to align design with specific national cultures to develop spaces where people are happy, healthy, wealthy (at least in spirit), and wise.”
