#brandarmy

Build an army of great storytellers, be where the target segment is, and get them to talk good about your brand and product.
Storytelling is also user experience.

#contentis

Content needs to be more interactive and also create value for the users.
Great content generates revenue and helps ranking your content as good SEO in Search engines.
Always make good content and they will follow.
Facebook is unreliable, A-B test headlines to see and learn possible reach and engagement.

#antonelli

Frame new problems, see practicality in product design.
Metabolism of nature, adapt design for how we grow.
Make technology merge with pleasure and convenience. “Delight!”

#nxtdesign

Design for minialism and magasin wise. Visually beautiful, with stunning photographs/pictures and excellent storytelling to create HUGE value.
Extend storytelling through instagram and social to generate revenue and to sell and market your product.
Design new things to solve, not just for the art.

Traditional UX and/or web designers needs to step out of their comfort zone and design deigns that acutally solves problems.

#ArtandExp

Use the digital platform as a layer to evolve your analog dimension . If your business is not digital in some way, make your business in way that other can make it digital.

Say “yes” more will give you BIG opportunities.

Value skateboarders, they are great people that do great things.
Nothing comes from no. Is the opportunity worth it? SAY SHIT YEAH!

#NewTalent

Merging traditional with digital = Tradigital.

“Hackonomy” how brand that disrupt the norm will come out on top, as well as what this means for future generations of marketers.
Companies needs to build and invest in talents and not be so traditional and afraid to loose talents in favour of other companies.
Companies needs to become companies that great talents want to work for!

#uxdata

Provide a QA function measure for a design.
A-B test UX research.
Identify patterns, what kind of senses through data and analytics to redesign core functions of websites, apps and products.
Integrate with transparency.
More feeling of tech ownership around big data.
