Before you talk about your product, we need to know the problem.The world of construction is set to be rewritten through product design & tech... COVID has only accelerated that vision.We caught up with Guy Newsom, Design Director over with XYZ Reality, as we uncovered the transition of working for Samsung to being tucked away in a little box cupboard of a studio in the London Business School.With Drew also starting a new gig at a startup, this was a great opportunity for Guy to look back over the last few years and share his insight into building a brand as well as a design team.If you ever want to be involved in the podcast, or our live webinars then fire us a message to / insta:wespeakdesigntruth(excuse some of the audio here. We had some zoom issues at the time.)
We had a message from a listener.He was secluded in a farm in Northern Australia and our podcast was his only connection to the design world.So we thought we would bring the Aussie design world to him.We had the pleasure of speaking with both Troy Nyssen (Creative Director) and Nathan Pollock (Founder) of Katapult Design.Katapult is an elite-level, red-dot award winning agency. This chat is to understand what makes them tick, the challenges they are facing and the parallels between the UK & Australian design scene.For more industrial design content, head over to you want to be involved in the podcast, or speak at our LIVE webinars, send us a message to
