Did you know Design can help your business grow? Join us as we bring together three Design luminaries to discuss Design technologies that help create immersive human experiences to act as a catalyst for disruptive business models and industries. 


Lee Bazalgette - Founder, Director & Chief Tea Drinker of Colombo Design Studio

Lee takes a human centered and functional view of design innovation, finding practical and workable solutions to problems whilst retaining the ‘surprise and delight’ factor that leads to the all-important “Check this out…” conversation. It’s this unconventional design thinking that has led to Colombo Design Studio working with as diverse clients as Ceylon Pencil Company, Rainco and Lion Brewery, as well as a number of startup brands both locally and abroad. Lee also lectures at Moratuwa University on the relatively Product Design field within the faculty of Architecture.
