Event description


Our creative conference Foundry Live is back and this time around, we’re truly shining the spotlight on Tasmania - the hub of all things creative right now.

Foundry Live brings some of the nation's best design minds to the state to talk data-driven design - and we're streaming it all, live around the nation.

Join us on July 4 to see us live in Launceston, or live-streamed at our iconic Hobart campus (and to the rest of Australia), right off the back of all the Dark Mofo action.

Data-Driven-Design (DDD) is a hot topic at the moment, but what exactly is it? That question in itself is a much-debated subject, so rather than just reading the twitter arguments, we thought we'd use it as the theme for our creative conference.

Gathering together four top creatives, who use data in four very different ways, to inform their design, strategy and thinking, we'll seek to explore how data affects us all, both in work and home, now and (even more so) in the future.

Join us as we hear from Fjord, AKQA, Carter Digital and 2nd Road and explore the harnessing of data, for design and decision making.

The Line-Up

- James Noble | Chief Design Officer of Carter Digital

James has helped re-define, create and evolve customer and user experience for over two decades and has represented Australia for UX & Digital Craft at Cannes Lion.

With stints as a UX industry advisor for Adobe and Webby’s judge, we can’t wait to hear all about the founding member of Australia’s number one business and marketing podcast.

- Maggie Chau | Lead Experience Designer of AKQA

Maggie is a NNg (certified experience expert) and lead experience designer at AKQA - a world wide innovation and experience design agency.

Over the last 12 years Maggie has worked on a wide range of projects from branding, graphic and web design, user research to running end-to-end projects for tier one clients to uplift their digital experience.

- Tarra Van Amerongen | Group Director, Fjord

A true intrapreneur and design director in Sydney, Tarra has worked for more than a decade advising companies on their transformation journey, playing in the unique intersection between design, technology and strategy.

Twice an expat, Tarra has worked on complex projects bridging regional and cultural divides across North America, Europe and Australia.

- Alex Glenn | Senior Director, 2nd Road

As Senior Director at 2nd Road (part of Accenture Strategy), Alex drives strategic innovation within organisations, taking them on a shared journey of discovery and invention.

Focused on transforming businesses from the inside out, Alex and 2nd Road believe that great organisations of the future won’t be built around the industrial model, but around people.
