First he taught us how to present our work with confidence. Then he taught us how to fight fascism. Now – after writing one of the most important books on design in the 21st century – Mike Monteiro returns to From Business to Buttons.
"We built the engine that broke the world. We built the machines that turned vitriol into profit for bankers and billionaires. And we turned a blind eye because of the crumbs falling from their table. But as the window closes on humanity, and we finally realize the error of our ways, do we have a shot? Can we turn things around? Is there even the smallest sliver of hope? Possibly. But you're not gonna like it."
Every year we ask the participants what speakers they would most like to see at From Business to Buttons. Mike has been topping that chart ever since he last visited in 2017. His previous talks also hold two of the top five spots in the history of the conference.
This is something that you definitely do not want to miss.
Mike Monteiro is the co-founder and design director of Mule Design. He prefers that designers have strong spines. In 2019 he published Ruined by Design, a book on design ethics and activism. He believes workers have a right to unionize and a responsibility to improve society. He's done with your excuses.
