Join us at DeskLodge House for ‘The Art of Experience: do frameworks, guidelines and software kill creativity?’ learn more about BIMA and how you can get involved from MD, Holly Hall, followed by fascinating talks from Sam Munton, Head of Design at Nomensa and from Thomas Buchanan : Tom Metcalfe, Artist and Creative Director.  Our speakers will present two approaches to engaging and immersing your audience and creating more engaging experiences.  

This event is for BIMA members and non members.


Sam Munton – Head of Design at Nomensa

Sam is inspired by solving real life problems with elegant digital designs. In a modern digital design context, she believes it is imperative that we step away from building websites and transition to building digital services as experiences that are delivered across multiple channels.

With over 18 years’ experience in creating engaging design solutions, both client and agency side, Sam provides creative and strategic direction to clients and teams to humanise technology.

Sam Munton, Head of Design, Nomensa

Tom from Thomas Buchanan brings a thought provoking approach to design and experience from his work with Yo! Sushi, Marriott Hotels and Unilever on how they’ve used installations and immersive theatre to achieve brand activation. Thomas Buchanan’s approach is underpinned by design research and a conscious approach to minimising our impact on the planet.
