Andalsnes Master Plan proposal / Jagnefält Milton

Andalsnes Master Plan proposal / Jagnefält Milton | Design | Scoop.it
"Our master plan proposal for the Norwegian city of Åndalsnes turns the old industry train tracks into a new kind of infrastructure for mobile buildings that can be rolled back and forth depending on seasons and situations. For example, we propose a rolling hotel, a rolling public bath and a rolling concert hall."

12 of the Year's Best Ideas in Interface Design [Slideshow] | Design | Scoop.it
This past year, we brought you stories on everything from tweeting toddler toys and streamlined ATMs to news-reading apps and remote controls that magically change channels with a wave of the hand. Though wildly different from one another, these projects share a common denominator: They all display intriguing user-interface innovations. (via @timleberecht )

3D food printer

3D food printer | Design | Scoop.it
with a three-dimensional food printer, the future of food
is just a mouseclick away.

not the only device of its kind, but arguably the most advanced,
the 3D food printer is designed and being further developed in america
by cornell university's computational synthesis laboratory,
headed by dr. jeffrey ian lipton. the team's fab@home technology,
designed as a collection of open-source rapid prototyping systems,
allows three-dimensional objects to be 'printed' by a syringe,
whose movements are determined from computer blueprints and models.
layering lines of material ultimately generates a three-dimensional object
in a process they call 'solid freeform fabrication.'

Derek Powazek - Design for Serendipity

Derek Powazek -   Design for Serendipity | Design | Scoop.it
But we should be designing for serendipity. If you make a website, take a look at it and ask yourself, “when someone comes here looking for one thing, where do I have the opportunity to tell them about something else?” It could be in a footer, for example. This can be tricky, because you don’t want to interrupt a self-directed experience. Just look for the cracks where you can leave hints about what else is available. Hint: Newspapers have been designed this way for years. Crib, crib heartily.

Can Airports Be Fun? - NYTimes.com

Can Airports Be Fun? - NYTimes.com | Design | Scoop.it
Most existing airports in the United States were designed before 9/11, at a time when it was typical to arrive 30 minutes before your flight was due to depart. Today, as Bill Hooper, aviation practice leader at Gensler, says (and we all know all too well), “We all need at least twice that to make sure we get through security in time. Plus, you need to grab food in the terminal, because meals aren’t served on flights as they once were. So we have people spending twice as much time past security, and needing more amenities while they’re there. The things that travelers need in terminals today just weren’t considerations when most terminals were originally designed, so the needs just aren’t being met.”

Browse the Artifacts of Geek History in Jay Walker's Library

Browse the Artifacts of Geek History in Jay Walker's Library | Design | Scoop.it
Nothing quite prepares you for the culture shock of Jay Walker's library. You exit the austere parlor of his New England home and pass through a hallway into the bibliographic equivalent of a Disney ride. Stuffed with landmark tomes and eye-grabbing historical objects—on the walls, on tables, standing on the floor—the room occupies about 3,600 square feet on three mazelike levels. Is that a Sputnik? (Yes.) Hey, those books appear to be bound in rubies. (They are.) That edition of Chaucer ... is it a Kelmscott? (Natch.)

BBC - Modern Masters - Virtual Exhibition : Dali - Chupa Chups logo (1969)

BBC - Modern Masters - Virtual Exhibition : Dali - Chupa Chups logo (1969) | Design | Scoop.it
In 1969 Dali was approached by Spanish confectioners Chupa Chups to design a new logo, and the result became as instantly recognisable as his melting clocks. Dali incorporated the Chupa Chups name into a brightly coloured daisy shape. Always keenly aware of branding, Dali suggested that the logo be placed on top of the lolly instead of the side so that it could always be seen intact.

Eye-catching, bold and deceptively simple, the logo has barely changed since Dali created it.

Mule Design Studio’s Blog: Giving Better Design Feedback

Mule Design Studio’s Blog: Giving Better Design Feedback | Design | Scoop.it
First rule of design feedback: what you’re looking at is not art. It’s not even close. It’s a business tool in the making and should be looked at objectively like any other business tool you work with. The right question is not, “Do I like it?” but “Does this meet our goals?” If it’s blue, don’t ask yourself whether you like blue. Ask yourself if blue is going to help you sell sprockets. Better yet: ask your design team. You just wrote your first feedback question.

Why Wesabe Lost to Mint - Marc Hedlund's blog

Why Wesabe Lost to Mint - Marc Hedlund's blog | Design | Scoop.it
Mint was a better name and had a better design - both of these things are true, but I don't believe they were primary causes for our company to fail and for Mint to be acquired. Mint's CEO likes to talk about how ridiculous our name was relative to theirs, but I think the examples of Amazon, Yahoo, eBay, Google, and plenty of others make it plain that even ludicrous names (as all of those were thought to be when the companies launched) can go on to be great brands. Mint's design, while definitely very appealing and definitely a factor in getting people to trust the company, doesn't seem to me to be enough to explain the different outcomes, again based on what I've seen from other companies (del.icio.us versus Magnolia, eBay versus Amazon Auctions, and now iPhone slipping against Android). Design matters a huge amount, without question, and Mint's design was exceptional, but if other, stronger forms of lock-in are in place first, design alone can't win a market, nor can it keep a market.

Donald Norman concludes his recent piece for core77 by saying "But beware: We must not lose the wonderful, delightful components of design. The artistic side of design is critical: to provides [sic] objects, interactions and services that delight as well as inform, that are joyful. Designers do need to know more about science and engineering, but without becoming scientists or engineers. We must not lose the special talents of designers to make our lives more pleasurable." What he might not realize is that we are already losing that creative bent. Our desire to speak the languages of marketing, engineering, and rigorous research have left us neglecting our native tongue, design.
