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

Ideas on Diversity

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?
