What do Slideshare, Pinterest, Airbnb, Uber, Etsy, Instagram, and Tumblr have in common? They are all successful design-founded and led businesses. Their ‘design’ way of thinking transformed their startups into top companies with millions in revenue. Good design (user experience, brand, customer journey etc) is good for business in ways that are measurable, profitable, and helpful for the customer. Dun Laoghaire has a concentration of design and creative businesses which could underpin it’s goal of becoming the region’s hub for digital innovation and growth hence how design can help grow your business is the topic for our March Digital Dun Laoghaire meetup.
