Saw this recently and thought that Dan had some great thoughts about the role and shape of design in the near future…any thoughts about what he might be missing? I’m particularly interested in #4: A return to basics in understanding people.
OK, OK, above the belt guys. Though the faux Dan Formosa reply was hilarious.
I predict a lot less change than people think. Don’t confuse the change in tools for the change in process.
The type of processes that the the Eames, Dreyfus, and even Loewy and Teague used are very much what we still do. Analyst the problem, learn and investigate, conceptualize, visualize, collaborate and execute. The tools are and will be totally different. The critical thinking, curious minds, and general desire to think, make, and do will be the same.
