Designing Relate 2020


What WWDC is for Apple users, Relate events are to Zendesk users. I’ve done a couple in London and they were always a delightful combination of tons information, both technical and commercial, good speakers and a nice calming design.

Pity/understandable that this one was cancelled due to COVID, from the images in the article linked the look and feel alone would have made this event a joy to walk around in.

But I had to document what this event would’ve been. This article is an ode to the amazing team of Zendesk creatives and marketeers, from 3D to sound and video and slides, as well as our colleagues from Sparks, who dedicated sweat, time, tears, talent (and, let’s be real, probably a little blood) to create beautiful things that never saw the light of day.
