Join us for a night celebrating user interface design as we look to the future with an eye on the present. We have a host of outstanding UI designers waiting to talk you through their work, inspirations and where they think the industry is heading.

Because no one captures the imagination of technology like Hollywood, we’ve collected together a group of super talented designers making futuristic UI for film and TV, in addition to one of the designers pioneering how we create design for screen.

You’ll notice Gemma’s work from the infamous ‘Nosedive’ Black Mirror episode, a social commentary on how much we rely on approval from our online peers – brought to life by Gemma’s stunning visuals.

Andrew and BLIND Ltd create user interfaces for some of the biggest films around. From Star Wars to Kingsman, DC Cinematic Universe and the Nolan Batman trilogy, Andrew and his team design the increasingly prevalent user interfaces, holograms and tactical displays in feature films reflecting the expanding human-computer interaction in our everyday lives.

Sam will share Territory Studio’s acclaimed motion graphic design and visual effects work.  With a string of science fiction, near future and action films from Ready Player One, Blade Runner 2049, Ghost in the Shell to The Martian and games Horizon Zero Dawn, the studio’s UI, 3D and holographic designs straddle Hollywood and Silicon Valley, helping to shape audience expectations of future technology and environments.

Basak’s work for InVision is currently focused around InVision Studio, a tool set to become a staple in the modern user interface designers toolbar. InVision guides the design process for over 3.5 million users and is better placed than anyone to tell us where we’re heading next in the industry.

Located at The Custard Factory, in the heart of Digbeth, Birmingham’s Creative Quarter, The Old Library is a truly unique space. The original library first opened as one of Birmingham’s five free libraries in 1866, and it is now the only one still standing. The library’s doors closed to the public in 1940 and remained closed until 1990. Many of the Victorian period features have been recently restored, including vaulted ceilings and iconic arch windows – making the interior light and airy, and flooded with natural daylight.

The Old Library is easily reached by public transport, car, or about 10 minutes walk from Birmingham city centre.
