“What is Design?” Workshop

On August 16, 2006 I presented “What is Design?” at the Invent Singapore Conference 2008: Design for Life workshop. I had a really great time as we had a really friendly audience that asked great questions.

What is Design?

I designed the slide show not as a Design definition exercise. Far from that. In fact designers are still debating on what design really is. This presentation was really more about looking at design on a holistic level and how design like the subject itself is constantly evolving. Not only that, the focus of the presentation was more about creating a design mindset for inventors to understand what design can do for them.
