Red Dot stages gaming congress in Berlin: "Success by Game Design: Transmedia Challenges and Potentials”

How can the success factors of gaming be used across sectors? On 17 October 2013 the Red Dot Design Museum hosts a congress on the economic and cultural potential of game design in other markets, taking place at the legendary Café Moskau in Berlin. “Game Master” Dr. Linda Breitlauch, Professor of Applied Sciences in Düsseldorf, will accompany the guests through the topics of gamification, serious games, technology transfer and transmedia.

The experienced Red Dot juror highlights the importance of game design and its influence on other markets. With the congress she wants to increase the game industry’s economic output: “The enormous potential of one of the biggest entertainment markets will be exploited further: Beyond the entertainment aspect, gaming technologies offer a variety of possibilities in the field of economy, culture, education and science. Nowadays, the creative industries need to pay special attention to this challenge.”

The exclusive convention is meant to show agencies, freelancers and inhouse creatives to what extend game design has an impact on advertising and industry. Ultimately, the speakers’ aim is to expose in how far the success factor of gaming can be used optimally across sectors. Besides experts from the international games industry, winners of the Red Dot Award: Communication Design 2013 also have the chance to participate in the conference.

Until 24 May creative minds have the opportunity to enter in 21 different categories to compete against the best within the communications industry. Be it designers, agencies, employers or talented newcomers – the international quality seal Red Dot guarantees worldwide interest and impresses partners, media, industry insiders as well as clients.

06_EDBD13As a BEDA Centre of Competence for Design & Business Dialogue, designaustria organised the fourth European Design Business Dialogue (EDBD) in May this year. For the first time the conference took place at two locations – Vienna and Graz.

Under the theme »Design for success« the EDBD 2013 focused on striking examples from representatives of leading international companies such as Airbus, Pfizer, Kone, Eternit or Roca. The speakers used their presentations to enter into a design–business dialogue with the conference participants in order to demonstrate clearly how companies and organisations can benefit from deploying design in the right way.

Medical Design, inventing care solutions for tomorrow

Cité du design, Saint-Etienne within the framework of the XXVth Entretiens Jacques Cartier

Design gives a new look on medical techniques and holds an outstanding potential of innovation. At the interaction of human being and object, design creates products and services adapted to the person, and contributes to improve the comfort of the patient’s environment. Design obviously cannot have therapeutic effects as it is generally understood, but it is a mean to make the disease less alarming ; it enables to consider new modes of care, prevention and support for the patients and their family, in particular at home. This symposium proposes to develop the issue of medical design as an innovation driver to:

• Collaborate with research, innovating in the field of medical technologies (artificial organs, implants or biomaterials, etc.);
• work on the comfort and improvement of treatments for the patients, or imagine new diagnosis and intervention devices for doctors and medical staff;
• reconsider the notion of care and invent the context of evolution for the forthcoming medical practices.
