Design & Technology Synthesis

A hyperactive primer to mixing design & technology targeted at students, young experience designers and ambitious design & development teams.

During this talk, we’ll walk through experiences learnt across 12 years of bringing code, platform geekiness &  design hacks into design projects and emploring students to use anything computerized in their school work — making every piece of technology a useful raw material for design.

We’ll show how designers & design students have used a variety of tools to hack, cheat, visualize, examplify and squeeze together bits and pieces of PostScript, Skype, Quartz Composer, Origami, Makey Makey,,,,, terminal Say commands, NodeBox, Processing, Framer and Windows cmd.exe to create thought-provoking design expression & experiences.
