Muriel Maas's insight:

Sensing is something we do all the time. But what a good idea to create a Sensing cockpit: "Make your findings visual, cluster and re-order the clippings until meaningful patterns start to emerge and key insights reveal themselves." Brilliant!

'Tijd dat ontwerpers het overnemen van de managers'

'Tijd dat ontwerpers het overnemen van de managers' | Design For Our Connected World | Scoop.it
Dat de wereld geregeerd zou moeten worden door ontwerpers is wellicht wat veel gevraagd, maar laat ontwerpers in ieder geval zelf hun eigen sector ...
Muriel Maas's insight:

Het tijdperk van de ontwerper! Het gaat in het design vak niet alleen maar over mooi, over esthetiek. Het gaat ook over het bieden van alternatieven, het tonen van nieuwe horizonten, het bijdragen aan oplossingen voor prangende grote en kleine maatschappelijke vraagstukken, het doorbreken van taboes. Niet met praatjes maar doen.

Jad Abumrad: Why “Gut Churn” Is an Essential Part of the Creative Process

Jad Abumrad: Why “Gut Churn” Is an Essential Part of the Creative Process | Design For Our Connected World | Scoop.it
When every instinct is telling us to stop, how do we keep pushing our creativity to unknown heights?
Muriel Maas's insight:

The paradox of change: The fact that people are yelling at you right now, just means you are in the right direction.

 

Change can’t be planned. It only an be recognized after the fact. So we built in an irritating but vital amount of recognition time into our process. We do an experiment, we’ll get together and we’ll tear it apart. These meetings are stupid, long, exhausting... but every so often you’ll get a little note that is a pointing arrow into the future.

Open Design – a map of contemporary Open Design structures and practices

Open Design – a map of contemporary Open Design structures and practices | Design For Our Connected World | Scoop.it

Although the term Open Design is a recent and still developing creation, the concept is old and has always manifested itself in projects where ideas, improvements or experimental findings about a production process or tools are regularly shared, allowing its free distribution and the expansion of knowledge, which in turn influences and develops other processes and models. Basically, Open Design is a phenomenon based on co-creation, knowledge sharing, distributed production and open licence.
