This seminar will explore the world of product design from a unique angle, with a particular focus on the impact of the digital age on the design of modern products.

Mark Sorsa-Leslie of Beringar, a young Scottish company, will present an insightful overview of his journey from an initial design idea to a successful marketed product.
