Design Research Society 50th Anniversary Conference

The Design Research Conference was held in the summer of 2016 in Brighton, UK. Not only was the conference full of wonderful speakers and workshops, but I loved the culture in Brighton.

The Design Research Society was founded in 1966, and facilitates an international design research network in approximately 40 countries.
