When we think of a 4.0 world, we normally envision certain possibilities, services and objects in a distant, almost utopic, future. Nonetheless, Smart Design is already working in our present day, from criteria of technological innovation, functionality and sustainability in order to create a digital and mobile day to day.
Technological changes also imply a modification of user’s interests and requirements, both in complex and specific processes as in daily tasks. As a designer, you must conquer not only creative tools, but you must also have the technological training and the transformative spirit needed to get ahead in the 4.0 world.
