Policies are all around us and govern the way we live, work, collaborate and how we use everyday products and services. But not all policies are designed for equity or accessibility. Often we ignore verbose legalese and just accept the terms and conditions until something goes wrong. How might we apply a more structured design process to policy making? What are the different layers and areas that policy needs to be investigated and designed for our products of the future?
In this Web Jam, we’ll unpack the different layers of policy and consider the implications, governance, accessibility and processes necessary for designing a speculative product in the metaverse.
How do we make use of design in our daily activities? Dhruva Paknikar will help us explore that question by delving into the what, how and why of applications of the design process in our daily activities.
In this session we will learn about everyday design, acknowledge the design presence around us, discuss various aspects of everyday design and enjoy the process.
Dhruva Paknikar is a prolific designer and a global entrepreneur having corporate presence in India, Europe, South East Asia, Middle east & The United States. Dhruva is the founder and MD of ‘Dominix Global Design Private Limited’, world’s best young design company practicing in lifestyle, Industrial, Communication, Strategy, Digital and Space Design.
In this session, we are going to be jamming the color yellow, a goldish, smile, laughter, the sun, and a sunflower to explore how can we cultivate more happiness-driven growth, what gets in the way and how can we overcome it.
Make sure to wear something yellow and get ready to smile! If you have a goldfish, feel free to bring one along too.
An interactive, experimental and unusual session exploring avenues of BodyMind intelligence and language in relation to the aesthetics of nature.
One portal of inspiration that is constantly available to us is the natural world around us. This session invites you to actively expand your innovation and expressive lens, to include the elements (of which we are made and in constant interaction with), and begin to discover the many ways in which nature inspires our perceptions and creative work. Let's get outside of our brains and see what there is to discover.
Please note that due to daylight savings ending in Europe, the start time for US Eastern time will be at *12.00* instead.
Emily Poel and Colin Skelton are collaborators in creating the BodyMind Lab., an experimental space devoted to conceptualising and innovating practices supporting body-mind intelligence. Our goal is to bridge the body/mind gap by curating the current scientific discourse on embodied cognition and bringing it into concrete, physical practice, through the reflective merging of felt-sense and intellect.
Richard will tell us the story of Procter & Gamble’s Innovation GYM, how it was established and operates.
He will share the five elements of the GYM model:
i) Physical Venue/Studios,
ii) Operations Team Structure,
iii) Key Innovation Tools,
iv) Innovation Coach/Facilitator Network, and
v) Management Structure.
These Elements worked in synergy to create and maintain a thriving Innovation Engine at P&G for over a decade! We will dive into one of the tools used in the GYM, the Basadur Innovation Style Scatterbrains Profile, through a hands-on exercise in MURAL.
The need for more sustainability in our work and design practices snowballs. How do we design for a future where all life thrives? In this web jam, we play with the Unbeaten Studio ecosystem context map and explore our impact on nature from different perspectives.
Why intuition led decisions are often tricky to quantify and validate? It is often this human essence that leads us to new horizons and discoveries. What if there is a a way in which we could master this way of thinking? Conceptual thinking is just that!
For this session we will be taking our first steps into this exciting and creative paradigm of thinking. We will be exploring how conceptual thinking can make us take well informed decisions that are backed by sound understanding of where your thoughts have come from.
Join us and experience it yourself as we discover conceptual thinking through our guided session by our guest and crew member Swareena Joshi. We are certain that you will be able to implement this not just in your professional life but also in daily decision making, as we have put together exercises that are result oriented and easy to follow.
This session will cover the introductory basics to web3, what it is, the core ideas and a look at what industries are doing to transition to the new space.
It will also look at NFT marketplaces and how they differ to other online marketplaces as well as aspects of community, engagement, and how to take your first steps in web3.
The era of Web3 has dawned, as a product designer what might be some of the things you need to consider when designing a Web3 product and what aspects should you focus on. Connect with me on an engaging journey to explore the world of Web3.
Wednesday Web Jam is back next week! After a well-deserved summer break, we welcome our community back with a session on “Storytelling” from our guest Jeroen Weide, van der at DesignThinkers Academy and DesignThinkers Agency. Together, let’s listen to the storytellers of Hollywood. In this Web Jam, we will practice two important tools they use to create powerful stories.
