Aspen Ideas Festival

Two great talks at the Aspen Ideas Festival which happened last week in Aspen, Colorado.

The Evolution of Design Tim Brown, IDEO

"As designers become more involved in solving the world’s problems, dealing with complexity becomes paramount. This requires a paradigm shift for the practice of design, moving from thinking about the world in the way that Isaac Newton encouraged us to think about it to the way Charles Darwin thought about it. Embracing a more evolutionary approach to design can do more than enable us to create better products and services. We can use these ideas and principles to tackle some of the most important challenges of our time."


Talk to Me: Design and Communication Between People and Objects
Paola Antonelli, MOMA

"Whether openly and actively, or in subtle, subliminal ways, things talk to us, and designers help us develop and improvise the dialogue. Antonelli discuses Talk to Me, her current project at MoMA, which delves into the worlds of information and communication design."
