I’ll be sharing some of my favourite TED talks about design, creativity and design thinking.
To start here’s just a couple of folks I think are definitely worth following/checking out 🙂
- Don Norman
- Roman Mars
- Pod cast : 99 percent invisible
- Mike Rohde
- Sunny Brown
TED TALK #1 (12:41)
3 ways good design makes you happy : Don Norman
TED TALK #2 (18:18)
TED TALK #3 (7:25)
How play leads to great inventions : Steven Johnson
If you’ve never done ‘Drawing toast’ , its a great way of getting outside of your problem; a ‘10,000 ft view’ and getting those who don’t normally put pen to paper to begin to think visually. I like to use it as a warm up for sketchnoting workshops too, getting people used to being succinct and focused.
TED TALK #4
A nice watch, some nice points about small things, being creative and some everyday design awareness
TED TALK #5 (14:10)
Design in the details : Paul Bennett
I’ve been an avid reader and scribbler for years but only recently started thinking about publishing my work.
I’ve always enjoyed writing and have, since 2008, been producing scripts for theatre as my main focus of writing, but always scribbling poems, songs and short stories for fun, and/or catharsis. I’m also a keen sketcher and sketchnoter.
