Responsive Day Out

Way back in the early days of responsive design, Clearleft created this conference to fly the flag for responsiveness and multi-device design. We brought together the world’s key speakers on the subject, and attracted designers, developers and content people from far and wide to share their ideas and workflows, working together to develop new practices for the world of devices as we know it today. 

A stage and an audience.

dConstruct was one of the UK’s first tech conferences and remained well-loved until the last one we ran in 2015. Way back in the beginning we created it as a forum for eclectic, interesting and informative ideas for designers and makers. We brought together speakers who had important opinions and ideas to share with the tech world; from talks about empathic toasters, to studies of sci-fi interfaces, to strong and serious warnings about how to design for climate change, dConstruct offered annual food for thought to the design and tech industry.

The Brighton Dome packed with attendees.
