Design Indaba – DAY 1

These are some of the best things that I heard on Day 1…

“Every child is an artist, the challenge is to remain one” Pablo Picasso

“Use everything as staging grounds and stay alert, look at stuff” Chris Gotz

Experimental Jetset… everything they said was “refreshing”.

“There are no mistakes, only opportunities” Jake Barton*

“Embrace the mess” Ije Nwokorie

A good criteria to design something: “(1) Meet a real human need (2)with lower friction (3) and make it delightful” Tom Hulme

“Every challenge is an opportunity for innovation” Tom Hulme

“We conform to what people expect” Thomas Heatherwick

Here’s a link to pictures of the first day…we saw this on a screen in a seriously air-conned room (I’m not complaining, just saying)
