All You Need is Design Thinking

@ VOL 3 ON JUN 15, 2016

Design thinking is hot & has somewhat of a star status….and that’s fully justified!! Design thinking is helping organizations to emphatically uncover needs of customers, users and employees and design the appropriate solutions. This is a story about how design thinking builds on the strengths from design and brings empathy into organizational & innovation processes. All you need is design thinking!

Arnoud Koning shares on design thinking. Koning is passionate about design thinking which he first experienced within the global business services organization of Procter & Gamble. Since several years, he worked with applying design thinking in different business contexts and he started teaching design thinking and facilitation skills both inside P&G and together with the Design Thinkers Academy.

I'm a Designer and You Should Too

@ VOL 4 ON MAY 26, 2016

For Drew Kemp-Baird, being a designer isn’t about conjuring up a final product—it’s about understanding an underlying problem and proposing a well-rounded solution.  He suggests that whether you’re designing a building or birthday party invitation, thinking like a designer is a crucial skill that all of us should master and implement into everything we do.

MOTION + eMOTION: The Aesthetics of Movement in Architecture

@ VOL 10 ON FEB 28, 2017

"Normally when we think about building, we think of them as static objects, but why?"

In MOTION + eMOTION: The Aesthetics of Movement in Architecture from PechaKucha Night Bryan Vol. 10, Negar Kalantar explores the concept of transformability as a novel architectural design tool. In her work, motion itself is the design intention. Her creations take advantage of both the perceptual and functional qualities that movement can offer.
