Canada: Being Part Of London Design Festival
Last Updated: October 21 2016

For the last four years, Gowling WLG has partnered with design specialists to be part of the UK's largest design gathering, London Design Festival.

Protecting and exploiting design in the age of disruption

This year, we hosted a Q&A event on the importance of protecting innovation with guest-speakers including Mayku start-up founder, Alex Smilansky (Design Council Spark finalist), Autotrader's digital expert, Nikki Barton, formerly of Nokia and Microsoft and international designer, Matt Round of tangerine.

The event offered a great opportunity to hear from a number of designers, with different types of experience, discuss how protecting innovation is a crucial part of the design process.

On our Designs for Life insight page, you will find a three-part series in which we journey through the process of design, from inception to exploitation and enforcement, considering the steps from the point of view of the designer and design-led business.

Making the most of designs

In September 2015, our Design team hosted a London Design Festival event alongside three of Britain's leading designers: Richard Joseph (Joseph Joseph), Martin Darbyshire (tangerine) and Rob Law (Trunki).

Following the event, John Coldham discussed 'making the most of designs' with the three speakers. Listen to podcasts of these interviews here:
