See brilliant new talks from leading designers – without leaving your desk

Watch (or just listen to) designers from Minecraft, Airbnb and Adobe, as well as Anton&Irene and Lance Wyman – live from the Awwwards conference in Berlin.

If you can’t make it to Berlin for this year’s Awwwards conference, then Adobe is bringing it directly to you. From today, you can watch a live stream of interviews and discussions with leading digital designers, artists and other creatives – as well as being the first to hear about a new feature coming to one of Adobe’s products.

Each of the sessions promise to be inspiring, informative and entertaining – ranging from Minecraft’s experience design director Tobias Ahlin to Lance Wyman, designer of the iconic identity for the 1968 Mexico Olympics. You can watch each of the sessions from the comfort of your desk, stream it to one of your meeting rooms or you could just listen to the whole conference while you work.

The speakers will be sharing their tips, techniques and thoughts about the latest trends in digital design and creativity – providing unique insights into their practice that you can apply to your own.

Over the two days, you’ll hear from designers working dream jobs at some of the world’s most creative companies – whose work impacts millions of people. Minecraft's Tobias Ahlin is creating for a monthly user base of 55 million players (and has previously worked at Spotify and Github). Jeany Ngo is an experience designer at Airbnb, which has listings of over four million properties.

A wealth of worldwide creativity

Adobe's Awwwards sessions brings together well-known creatives from around the world. Legendary graphic designer Lance Wyman has come from New York to appear at the conference, as has design duo Anton&Irene. Other participants come from Italy (Aroratorio), Denmark (Michael Flarup), and, of course, Germany (Smashing Magazine's Vitaly Friedman, and digital designers Daniel Kluwe and Moritz von Volkmann).

Artists appearing in the live stream include Irina Spicaka and Melanie Daveid – who is also the product design team lead at football app Onefootball.

The final speaker is Adobe’s Khoi Vinh, who will be giving a sneak peek at a feature coming to Adobe XD – and will be revealing a collection of free icons for use with Adobe’s UX design tool created by some of the world’s leading designers.
