Nicolas Roope talks about the risky business of doing things no one has done before.
About the speaker
Nicolas Roope is a British industrial and digital media designer and entrepreneur. He is the founder & ECD of Poke London, the founder & creative director of Hulger and Plumen, the co-chair of Internet Week Eu, and chair of the Lovie Awards.
Through his 20 years experience as a designer and conceptual thinker at the forefront of the digital media revolution, Nicolas has gained some incredible experiences along the way. His most potent insight is the realisation that digital - once and for all - is connecting everything, melting borders, divisions and prejudices along the way. We’re now in an age of sharing (not shoving); everything needs rethinking, reconstituting, reengineering and redesigning in order to meet rapidly rising expectations and standards of experience.
Nicolas was awarded The Design Entrepreneur Medal (2014), The Drum’s Entrepreneur Honor (2015), The Wired 100 (2011), Adage Creative 50 (2011), The Tech City Insider 100 and the BIMA Digital Hall of Fame (inaugural 20). He’s won many awards and sat and chaired many international juries. His company Plumen is about to Crowd Fund on Crowdcube in June – any interested parties can sign up here.
