Basic details

It's the month of love

Flash. Crackle. Pop. We're back. After a roaring return last month, we're back again for February at Skype's beautiful London HQ.

Expect an evening of great talks, beers, mingling and the kind of conversations you'll be thinking about for weeks to come. But beware, due to the laws of physics, things are a little more "bijou" this month, so get your tickets while they're hot.

Over the last 2 years, we've brought you 15 events, with over 2,750 attendees and 50 great speakers. If you want to get involved (speak, sponsor, host, or helping on the night), just drop us a line.

  • 7pm — 10pm
    (doors open 18:45)
  • Tuesday, February 10th
  • No 2 Waterhouse Square, 142 Holborn, EC1N 2SW


We're reaaly excited to have Skype supporting the second Design+Banter of 2015. They have a great team here in London, so be sure to grab a beer and chat to one of them at the event.


Tom Petty

Designer @ GoCardless

After designing apps for various unsuccessful businesses, Tom decided to have a crack at agency life by joining Wolff Olins. Whilst there he worked with Google, American Express and various unmentionables on everything from logos to restructures. He's now back in the start-up world running the design team at GoCardless, where you can find him mulling over the 'future of payments', or something.

Maxim Cramer

iOS Developer @ SwiftKey

Maxim currently works at SwiftKey where she had the privilege to be part of developing and launching SwiftKey Keyboard for iOS. Starting off with digital design at a young age, she grew curious about programming and so pursued it professionally, yet never straying far from UI/UX. Passionate about humans, she advocates testing products with people first and foremost, always enjoying the looks of surprise, confusion, and delight.
