Design effectiveness uncovered | DBA webinar

The wide ranging impact design can have in business, society and on people’s lives is evidenced by the DBA Design Effectiveness Awards winners year after year. We have a wealth of evidence to prove that when design is a fundamental and integral part of the mix, the success achieved can change the trajectory for both client and agency businesses.

If you’re looking for inspiration, a deeper understanding of what design can deliver and some practical advice, watch this webinar for a closer look at some recent winners. 

What are the critical building blocks for an effective design case study? How can you make the case for effective design in complex projects that span many years? What does a successful client agency relationship look like? How can you build and sustain a partnership that delivers outstanding results with design?

Chaired by DBA Design Effectiveness Awards chairman of the judges and Head of Service Design at the RCA, Clive Grinyer, we covered:

  • How the strategic use of design has exponential potential to transform a business
    With Jason Milne from Contagious exploring their recent wins with Port of Leith Distillery for Lind & Lime and Ian Macleod Distillers for The Glengoyne Distillery Experience.

    With Dai Sanders from DCA Design exploring recent wins with Reckitt for Air Wick and 2019 Grand Prix with GlaxoSmithKline for Sensodyne Daily Care Toothbrush.
  • How the input of design expertise can enable design-driven growth on a huge scale for a global business
