Sponsoring Leading Design connects your brand with design leaders from influential companies across the globe. The type of people who make hiring and purchasing decisions, define process and tool use and promote design at all levels of the organisation. Sponsorship is now closed for this year's event.
Leading Design Festival wouldn't be possible without our incredible sponsors, so a huge thank you to Google, Amazon Design, Salesforce, Sketch and Mailchimp for their support:
Intuitive, beautiful, user-centred design is key to the success of Google’s products. Their passionate, interdisciplinary UX specialists and designers work across platforms to create powerful visuals that highlight each of our product’s unique personalities. The team’s work touches billions while exemplifying one of Google’s core principles: “Focus on the user and all else will follow".
Amazon’s design community unites designers, researchers, writers, producers and technologists, creating experiences that transform the way our customers live their lives and run their businesses. We value individual expression, respect different opinions, and work together to create a culture where each of us is able to contribute fully. Our unique backgrounds and perspectives strengthen our ability to achieve Amazon’s mission of being Earth’s most customer-centric company.
What connects all Amazonians across teams and geographies is that we are all striving to delight our customers and make their lives easier—whoever that customer may be. Together, we are building the future, one innovative product, service, and idea at a time. Learn more at Amazon.Design.
Salesforce was started with a vision for a different kind of company—to change the way the world does business and at the same time, improve the state of the world. They are committed to a set of core values—trust, customer success, innovation, and equality of every human being. These are the guiding lights that drive what they do every day.
Salesforce believe that they have a broader responsibility to society, and aspire to create technology that not only drives the success of our customers, but also benefits humanity by driving positive social change.
Their community of experience designers are artists and scientists. They work together every day to make vibrant, empowering, and simple tools that enable companies and non-profits of all kinds to take advantage of powerful technologies to connect to their customers in a whole new way.
At Salesforce, their employees, customers, partners, shareholders, Trailblazers and the community are part of the Ohana, the Hawaiian word for family. They believe that together, they can make great things happen.
