In early 2015 Represent Recruitment approached us to make our audience aware of the expertise they have in the digital design world. We built on previous editorial collaborations with the brand to design, build and populate a dedicated digital-design microsite ‘Exploring Digital Design’.
We selected and profiled 12 digital designers across London, New York and San Francisco, ranging from multi-national agencies to game changing young gunslingers. We also created five articles that reflected prominent and relevant themes in the digital design world, from the designer/developer relationship to a glossary of terms.

Across the creative world, few sectors move more quickly, nor impact on all our day-to-day lives more than digital design. With that in mind, we’ve partnered with design recruitment specialist Represent for a series of articles exploring this hugely significant yet at times inaccessible world. We’ve chosen a selection of the the most interesting digital design practitioners from London, New York and San Francisco, ranging from major multinational organisations to talented young freelancers and profiled them to get a sense of how they work; we also sent photographers into their studios to have a nose around. Among those sharing their insights are ustwo, Fjord, Poke, Hugo & Marie, Nothing In Common, the BBC, OkFocus, Bureau for Visual Affairs, Marc Kremers and Jono Brandel.
As part of the digital design showcase we are running with Represent, we interviewed Marc Kremers and found him in an unflinching mood as he detailed some of the issues he felt were affecting the industry. Such was the reaction to Marc’s piece both on the microsite and social media, we have decided (with his permission) to republish an excerpt of his interview here. You can add your thoughts using the comment thread below, and check out the dedicated digital design showcase here.
