SlideShare

Overview

David will show how one small design gesture in an animation can plant the seed for a much larger-scale physical experience. Through the personal and collective journeys he has taken, he’ll prove that design at its core easily transcends mediums and disciplines.

Looking back to some foundational design projects at HUSH, David will explore how outside and personal influences, when paired with an ability to remain curious, creates evolution and growth for both designers and design itself.

Objective

To paraphrase Ray Bradbury: to encourage designers to “jump off the cliff, and build their wings on the way down”.

Target Audience

Anyone who wants to embrace the concept of true design not being limited to or by individual disciplines.

Five things audience members will learn

  1. It’s OK to not be an expert
  2. It’s possible (and exciting!) to continuously reinvent yourself and your work
  3. How to free yourself from the constraints of traditional career tracks
  4. How to embrace and harness your own excitement for many different disciplines, through inspiring examples of others from non-design fields
  5. How fearlessness in the face of “not knowing things” will allow you to create new and unique work, no matter the endeavour
