“We must stop defiling the earth itself with poorly-designed objects and structures.” – Victor Papanek
Papanek might have been onto something. Every day, designers and innovators alike, with the best of intentions, work really hard to devise solutions that often create more harm than good.
Less (Bad) Design is a toolkit for ethical ideation; limiting, as Papanek says, the objects and structures that “defile”. In this workshop, Less (Bad) Design author, and verynice Founder, Matthew Manos, will take participants through a new framework for uncovering the new problems our “solutions” might generate; questioning our own perception of the problems we seek to solve in the first place.
- Learn the 12 principles for bad design.
- Learn a new framework for defining problems.
- Learn a new approach to ethical ideation.
