Text taken from Think-Lab

National Art Gallery – The day Azlan Othman of Proton spoke and everybody was suddenly seeing a better promising future. Design industry was finally making its first small step in making strides to progress, as thinklab’s first design mini conference saw a lineup of speakers, that made a pact to a better future for the local design industry. It was an important and historic conference as the design industry players from New Media Designers to Environmentalist share their thoughts pertaining to the title “What Design Means to All of Us in times of Economic Crisis & Global Warming”. What was also a surprise is that Deputy Education Minister, YB Dato’ Saifuddin Abdullah and wife was there to witness the historic event. Below are images of the successful event filled with agents of change, wanting to make and see the difference in the local design scene.
