Dan Benjamin is joined by Dave Gray, Sunni Brown, and Mike Rohde to discuss visual thinking, visual note-taking, and the “doodle revolution.” They discuss how something as simple as a drawing can change how we communicate concepts and ideas more directly, and how this is beginning to change how people to business.
“We must rapidly begin the shift from a “thing-oriented” society to a “person-oriented” society. When machines and computers, profit motives and property rights are considered more important than people, the giant triplets of racism, materialism, and militarism are incapable of being conquered.”

‘Product Design’ isn’t really dead, but the meaning of it has changed dramatically in last few years.
I graduated last year with a BFA in Product Design but now I find the terminology confusing while job hunting for both companies and future employees.
I just noticed this add on the Pinterest jobs board. While I might be a Product Designer on paper I don’t fit the job description.
Why don’t we make it easier on ourselves.
Industrial Design is a well known (relativity) profession with distinct (yet slightly loose) description. Industrial Design pertains to the physical consideration of object interaction. Product design (also interaction) has to do with an interaction as a whole but mostly pertains to digital interaction. For defining the profession, ‘Industrial Design’, it’s a good start.
So why do they still distribute degrees in ‘Product Design’?
It does not mean one can’t be both. That might be the future of product design. But why not make it easier and define It just for the sake of job hunting. A process that is not always that fun to begin with.

A fun (it really is funny) yet insightful read.
“Lord Boothby… once told me. In 1931 I visited the Führer in Munich. When I stepped inside his office he jumped up, raised his right arm in the Nazi salute and shouted ‘Heil Hitler!’ I had no choice, I jumped up myself , raised my right arm and shouted, ‘Heil Boothby!’”

An end-of-the-year kind of set that really focuses on albums and tracks that were released right before the year’s end (thus mostly neglected from those end-of-the-year sets). This soft electronic stuff really goes well with the weather outside. Kinda chill. Mixed by DJ Wannabeats.
