"This year's HCID Open Day provides an excellent setting for academics and professionals in the connected fields of creativity, usability, web accessibility and mobile design to meet and exchange perspectives. The broad range of speakers from companies and institutions such as IDEO, Facebook, Songkick and Cambridge University will also ensure an engaging and stimulating day for anyone attending, especially prospective students."
Ben Logan, owner of Spotless Interactive, said:
"We are excited to be sponsoring the HCID2013 event this year and the line-up of speakers and topics is brilliant. We expect this free event to be a great opportunity for both students and practitioners alike to network."
Gideon Bullock, Design Director of Songkick, said:
"We hope to see healthy discussion on design within a start-up environment during this year's HCID2013. As a start-up, Songkick is constantly refining it's product development process, optimising towards learning things quickly.
