Summer Reading — Aotearoa Design Thinking 2018
Written by Lana Lopesi
Aotearoa Design Thinking has been somewhat of a two year experiment here at Design Assembly testing our ability to write and appetite to read deeper thinking about design and its ideas. Over these two years I have had the privilege of working with an amazing group of writers to massage some the most urgent writing about design (although of course I have a bias).
Have a read of what we’ve been thinking about this year:
Puncturing Mythology: Looking beyond the shiny myths that distract from the complexity in design in Aotearoa
Censoring Colors: Did the New Zealand government stop a famous image of Queen Elizabeth from being published?
Showing, Sharing, and Beyond: Design Exhibitions in Aotearoa
Permission to be Creative: 7 things I learned from 7 years of the 100 Days Project
Come Together: Design Societies, Professional Associations, Conferences, and Coworking
Floppy Disks, Flash and the Fourth Industrial Revolution: How is Technology Changing Design?
Designer and Mum, and Everything In-between
A Few Choice Voices: Different Ways of Talking About Design
Alternative Routes: An Interview with Katie Kerr
Murky Crystal Balls: Graphic Design and Envisioning the Red Zone
Ask the Experts: What is the number one piece of advice you have heard about being a designer?
Ask the Experts: What skills do you think will be needed by future designers?
