Our next session will be about a personal point of view, about an approach to the design of products, software and services. With Durrell Bishop, we’ll discuss the experiments and thought processes he has been using over the years where physical products become descriptive of their system.

Speaker

Durrel

Durrell is an London based designer who has spent 25 years experimenting with interactive experiences for products, games, installations and new hardware interfaces. His underlying interest is in finding new ways for commercial designs to communicate usefully.

He studied industrial design in London, and after a period of freelance design and photography, joined IDEO. In 1991 he returned to the Royal College of Art in London for a masters in interaction design and he then stayed on to continue research at RCA and with Interval Research in California. Later he designed camera-based games with his company “Dancing Dog” and then set up “itch” in partnership with Andrew Hirniak to work on award-winning interactive exhibitions. After another spell with IDEO in London, he set up “Luckybite” with Tom Hulbert. Their practical skills in design and technology let them work on a wide range of projects from installations, new physical interfaces for products, to innovative interaction concepts for software and services. He later worked with Berg on “Little Printer”, “CloudWash” and “Pixel Track” and in 2015 with Jack Schultz and Timo Arnall on Googles miniature radar “Soli”.

He has taught regularly at the Royal College of Art on Product Design, IDE and Interaction Design. He is currently is running a unit in Product Design exploring how products communicate.

During this current period of accelerated change, it has become increasingly clear that design offers a lot to the business world. To designers, it is easy to see why. Design clarifies vague, ambiguous situations. Design builds tangible, meaningful solutions that address latent, unarticulated needs of real people. Design even creates productive collaboration among unlikely players within organisations. And yet, many organizations are still often either too slow or too mired in old ways of operating to make use of what design can offer. This talk will tell some success stories and offer a few insights about how design and designers can help catalyse organisations and make them more dynamic, open to growth, change, and potentially even to happiness.

We’re excited to announce that Indi Young will be introducing her new book: Practical Empathy – For Collaboration and Creativity in Your Work.

Conventional product development focuses on the solution. Empathy is a mindset that focuses on people, helping you to understand their thinking patterns and perspectives. Practical Empathy will show you how to gather and compare these patterns to make better decisions, improve your strategy, and collaborate successfully.

More info on Practical Empathy at: http://rosenfeldmedia.com/books/practical-empathy/

For the past 20 years, Indi Young has been pioneering ways to understand customers and employees in order to support them better. Most organizations have developed awareness and expertise at gathering big data–the numbers that track what and how people have done things. These same organizations, however, are inexpert at understanding why. The messy and divergent reasoning and motivations that drive people’s decisions are what Indi helps you tune in. She is expert at gathering the thoughts that lie deeper than simple preferences, opinions, and desires. And she is expert at helping you solidify patterns and sort through the wavelengths to focus on particular channels so you can support people in more powerful ways.
