Guest blog: Design/Build/Market’s mini-conference is back this February
Interested in designing, coding or marketing for VR? Then get down to the next Design / Build / Market (DBM) event at Bristol’s Engine Shed!
Following the success of the first DBM event on crowdfunding last October, CookiesHQ is planning a series of exciting events for 2017, starting with one on virtual reality.
DBM is a series of mini-conferences, that aims to bring designers, developers and marketers together to discuss trends, tools and share knowledge. Each event follows the same simple rules: 3 exciting talks by leaders in their field, a limited number of attendees to allow the audience to engage with the speakers, and plenty of networking opportunities.
The talks will cover all 3 aspects of a single theme, as implied by the name of the event: design, development and marketing.

Virtual Reality being such a hot topic at the moment, especially in Bristol where the next VR World Congress will take place in just a couple of months, they have decided to focus on this topic for their next event, in February.
They have 3 excellent talks lined up:
- Jack Norris, Director, and Chris Price, Senior Designer at Zubr VR will share their experience of directing immersive content and talk to us about the challenges of being a graphic designer for an unestablished medium.
- Scott Fletcher, Director at Play Nicely, will give his perspective on the reality behind consistently delivering cutting-edge digital experiences for the public and home market, in particular the team skills that are required and why VR is going to succeed where AR did not.
- Dan Page, Marketing Manager at Opposable VR, will talk about brands using VR as a marketing tool and discuss future trends.
They also have a fantastic sponsor for the night, Chillblast, who have offered to bring 2 HTC Vive kits to give all the attendees a chance to experience awesome VR demos.
