Hyper Island x Startup Weekend

IMG_0443

Last weekend I had a great time mentoring the brilliant teams of startup weekend x hyper island.It highlited to me something that is so dear to my understanding of the potential of collaborative design work, and what happens when strangers come together to co-create. The interactive process of startup weekend is a brilliant way to quickly prototype new products and services in 48H, and the hyper island design process [thinking and doing] complements it very well. I would like to learn more and explore the tools and methods used.

Crafting Sustainability

craftingsustainabilityweb5

A collaboration in Photography and Communication Design

on-going project with photographer Katherine Needles

Drawing the viewer in closely using intimate forms of sound and analogue photography, we tell the stories of the craftsman within the sustainable food movement. Informal conversations are played alongside a collection of slides as an alternative documentation to  magnify the essence of those who are revolutionizing the way we eat.
