Designing in HD

Technology, and our relationship with it, can be both a blessing and a curse. As any innovator who has witnessed the tension of that first consumer engagement with an embryonic prototype will empathise, no ‘simple’ product or ‘smart’ technology is immune from engagement with the human dimension! But who has failed? The user, or the designers and engineers? I present a reflection on how keeping the human experience front of mind can allow us to both use technology to complement our work as innovators, and enable us to create technology specifications that more naturally improve the lives of the people we are designing for.

Collaborative Creativity Ignites Change and Drives Meaningful Solutions

In a world where society is changing rapidly, novelties commoditize instantly and markets are no longer segmented in familiar ways, opportunities are driven by meaningful and relevant ideas nurtured through company systems into successful commercialization. Innovation success is no longer measured by technology convergence but is driven by social cultural impact. Being actively curious leads to discovery and progress, improving the world around you. The translation of technologies into meaningful solutions is a task of designers; their empathy and storytelling will humanize technologies into relevant solutions that impact people’s lives. We know design can deliver competitive advantage, but how can we harness collaborative creativity to take this one step further, driving value, stimulating growth, and igniting change?
