Show Us Your Type is a travelling art concept. The team behind it choose a town and let designers and artists submit posters that feature the towns name. Last weekend a Berlin show opened and a poster I submitted was selected to be included. One of the shows sponsors, the insurance company AOK, chose my poster to hang in their own offices. The poster was also featured at the closing party of the Typo Conference.
Baked, fried, cooked, mashed, deep fried and raw. Sweet potatoes are all over Berlin.
Sometimes a project is started based on a feeling that a designer, engineer or manager has. However, what we choose to build should be "directed" by our users. Is there a way of getting user driven in a project that started based on internal feelings? I think Krste has found a way!
Choosing when to "go it alone" versus involving others is something I still struggle with. However, a deceptively simple system helps me choose. Understand what outcome I want. Consider who else to involve (if anyone). Choose a method.
I think a transformation is happening in digital product creation: We ux/product designers are eating the software creation process. It's a good development and your team should take advantage of it. Marc said...
