Go Design!

Thinking about design

I’m just back from the first O’Reilly Design conference and there were many talks and conversations about making design part of corporate life and how design thinking might be a tool to achieve that.

Dark matter

Tho perhaps not just that. Design seems too often framed within User Experience in engineering terms. As a tool. As something that, if only we could find the right screwdriver at the right time all would be good. The way people grab hold of an idea and put their hopes into Waterfall, Agile and SCRUM. This time it’ll work.

What can design learn from sports?

Just a quick idea – why not mimic sports bars and create design bars?

A design fiction

Imagine a bar with design classics on the walls.
