The latest hosting company to join our UX Tour of China is frog design.
Little needs to be said about frog design’s reputation in the design and innovation field. They are one of the first few western design agencies set up office in Shanghai. Since then, frog has been pioneering in the Chinese creative place. They have also been very active in the design events held in China, published quite a few well written reports on Chinese consumer culture and trends and its implication on the design. What is the reason behind their success? We’ll find out when we visit them in Shanghai!
We are trying very hard to introduce the most significant companies in China with a variety of industry and functions for our participants to visit. So far we’ve secured from FT100 companies to innovative design studios. It is bound to be a splendid knowledge sharing trip!
