Designers' Saturday

From March 2018 to December 2021, I was the chairman of the Board of Directors for Designers' Saturday. The role consisted of leading the working board, overseeing the conference, and being budgetary responsible.

About Designers' Saturday.

Designers' Saturday is Norway's largest and most important meeting place for design and interior architecture. For 6000 visitors and 170 exhibitors, DS is a source of inspiration, professional updates, and collegial and social meeting places.

Friday and Saturday are trade days, with open showrooms. The free buses are only running Saturday. On Sunday, parts of the exhibition will be to the public.

Designers' Saturday offers the best in furniture, lighting, textiles, kitchens, and floors; meet colleagues and new acquaintances again and get professional input through lectures and inspiring panel discussions.

During my tenure as the Chair, we decided to overhaul the festival's digital backend. When I took over the reins, it was a fragmented legacy system of multiple unconnected systems. There was a separate ticketing system for the opening night, parties, venues, and lectures. There was a clunky interface for the website, and all invoicing of exhibitors was done manually.

We engaged Feed to design and implement the changes. As we needed to maintain a low budget, a lean design approach was implemented. We kept parts of the original design language and gave it a refreshed look. This way, legacy printed and physical banners, flags, and stands could still be used.
