Re: Jawbone UP

How is the lumie? Unfortunately I can't say it's revolutionised my morning wakes-ups like the reviews on Amazon. The light alone doesn't wake me up so I still use my phone alarm. But it is nice and a little easier waking up to a lit room at 6am. I'm glad I bought it. Cool kids wearing skinny jeans ...

Re: Jawbone UP

I'm going to get an Up. I was considering a WakeMate . While I know me becoming a morning person is only going to happen through discipline, I'm happy to spend what I can to make waking up that little easier (I just also bought a Lumie recently). I'm fascinated about data surrounding my daily habits...

DesignLi.st

Hi guys, I hope this doesn't come across as a shameless plug, as I'm interested in getting some feedback and thoughts around my idea. I spent last weekend building DesignLi.st . DesignLi.st is a user curated collection of web content that aims to provoke stimulating conversation around the subject o...

Re: Define: Design

How would you put then people like starck, newson, ghery, that can't seem to draw worth a lick? I've never seen any jonny I've sketches either.... Those people can still (or did) communicate visually, in some form. I'm not sure the ability to sketch as the defining factor of a designer was the poin...

Re: When Design Goes too far....

The majority of the world population live in cities already, and this gap between city and country dwellers is predicted to grow. Particularly in developing nations, in which there's less choice in the matter. It's heading that way. It's difficult to compare yesterdays cities with tomorrows, the gro...

Re: Define: Design

For example, a marketing person or policy maker might be a strong verbal communicator, and posses problem solving capabilities, but without craft and visual communications, would be ruled out of the designer title. There seems to be a rise of 'designers' without that craft and visual communication ...

Re: When Design Goes too far....

I understand, but dont take yourself a the societal average. I drive once maybe twice a week. Almost always recreationally. I walk 2.5 miles to work, walk most errands. On the week end I want to blast it on the backroads, your not taking my car from me, sorry. Though from what I can make out, you'r...

Re: When Design Goes too far....

Apparently the data was collected from the Federal Highway Administration. Either way, I'm quite confident that automated cars would reduce the number of accidents dramatically when taking into account computer vs. human error. How about recreational motorboats? Do you know the numbers on recreation...

Re: When Design Goes too far....

Apologies for dwelling on the automated car concept - But I'm amazed at the amount of people agreeing this is not the future based solely on the fact we enjoy the experience of driving! Considering automated personal transportation has the potential to save 50,000 American lives a year as well as 23...

Re: Design Thinking is Dead

This article unsettles me slightly. Bruce Nussbaum is a writer, not a designer. His aim is to sell books and this article feels like an advert, fuelled by link-bait. The birth of a buzzword - 'Creative Intelligence' At this point, I am defining Creative Intelligence as the ability to frame problems ...

It would have been nice to provide that "linkage" in the first place.
I did provide a link - Airbnb.com

Re: What do you use to explain design?

That IDEO shopping cart video on YouTube?
I've used this before - Surely there's something similar out there a little more up to date.

What do you use to explain design?

Interested to see what resources people use when trying to explain the design process to non-designers. Particularly those in which you'll be working with on a project.

Anything - Websites, books, case studies, images etc throw them up here.
