DESCRIPTION

VIDEO OF THE FULL TALK HERE: http://vimeo.com/29969276 Design doesnt happen inside a vacuum. It happens inside teams, inside the context of relationships, inside physical spaces, inside organizations with very particular cultures. Ignore that intricate ecosystem, and you might as well give your project a death sentence. Teresa Brazen and Kate Rutter draw from their experience bringing this holistic outlook to the design process. Pulling from methods used in filmmaking, fine art, design research, facilitation, improv, and UX design, they craft intentional environments for their teams and clients. These literal and figurative environments cultivate work that is actionable, co-created, co-owned, and much more likely to succeed in the world. Theyll discuss the benefits of intentional environments and walk you through how to design them and methods for keeping them activated throughout the design process. Youll walk away understanding how to cultivate intentionality, co-create without compromising output, and inspire teams and clients along the way. But more importantly, youll have a powerful new framework that will enrich your entire design process.
