Digital Design Day Details: 17 September, London

Digital Design Day Details: 17 September, LondonWe know that lots of you, dear reader, are into Digital Design. Well, NMK have brought an event to our attention that we think you could well enjoy.

Digital Design Day is part of the London Design Festival and will be running the full day of 17th September 2008 at the Southbank Centre in London.

Scheduled to run between 9am and 11:30pm. The breakdown of the free and pay-for events is below.

There’s a pay-for conference, i-design, running between 9:30 – 4pm at the Purcell Room at the Southbank Centre. Their blurb says, “It will analyse and celebrate the current and future state of digital interactive media. Featuring leading practitioners and thinkers from the web, virtual worlds, mobile, games and interactive TV, the event will explore how our collective digital future will pan out, which trends will prosper or fail, and the role of interactive design in our cultural and social life.”

In the Queen Elizabeth Hall between 12 to 2pm, there’s a Free Creativity on the Mac Seminar where Apple’s Alan Rosenfeld and Byron Wijayawardena will provide an overview of the latest creative tools for the Mac platform. Hardly surprising given the Apple Authorised Training Centre for Education Programme is a sponsor of the event – but that doesn’t stop it being of use, of course.

In the Form Room between 4-6pm is a Free session titled Portfolio Clinic, which they describe as “The attendees will have the chance to meet some of the UK’s most successful and respected digital media agency heads and gain insight into portfolio presentation, best practice and find out what agencies are looking for in potential employees.”

There’s an Interactive Area in the Front Room Foyer between 9am to 4pm where the work of companies such as Smoothe, Neighbourhood, Neoscape, Uniform, Autodesk, Future of Sound, and UCL will be showcased.

The evening, 6:30-11pm, will see the Y Design Awards take place at the Royal Festival Hall. They’ve extended the submission dates until 29 August, so there’s still a chance for you to get involved.
