 Frank-Rausch
Typography is Code
Text is everywhere. We read more than ever, probably consuming more written content from glass than from paper. Designing a quality reading experience for dynamic text requires a mindset and workflow different from traditional print typography. All digital text is processed by algorithms, so every aspect of how words and sentences are displayed can be shaped with code. This makes programming an essential and powerful skill for designers and typographers. It’s time to explore and embrace methods that will make digital reading interfaces better than printed paper. In his talk, Frank will show details from his work and speculate about the typographic workflows of the future.
Frank Rausch is a user interface designer, app developer, and typographer. He is co-founder and managing partner at Raureif, an award-winning interaction design consultancy based in Berlin. In his work, Frank Rausch explores how technology and code can shape high-quality digital reading experiences. He teaches app design and typography at design schools in Austria, Denmark, Germany, and Switzerland.

Designing the Design
Everything is designed and everyone is a designer are mantras that get shared everywhere these days. But how do we design? How do we setup projects for success and what can we do to make sure that our greatest talents, aka you, stay interested and motivated? So in this talk I would like to share the meta process of design and how we approach this design opportunity at IDEO and more importantly discuss with you where this differs from your processes.
When: Wed. March 14th 2018, 17-18.

Open Lecture: Craig Winslow

From The Past, Build The Future
Come join a discussion of the process and logistical hurdles behind Craig Winslow’s latest project, ‘Brilliant!’, a permanent installation with The Neon Museum in Las Vegas. The project utilises projection mapping across a complex canvas of broken neon, a soundscape of 3D audio, and the creation of climate-controlled towers that can withstand harsh desert weather— heat, wind, dust, and monsoons. The resulting experience is an emotional neon revival that transports you back into vintage Las Vegas. He’ll also dive into the historical preservation process behind Light Capsules (lightcapsul.es), a project started in 2016 during his Adobe Creative Residency, which temporarily, digitally restores faded ads & type of ‘ghost signs’ using projection.
Winslow is an independent experiential designer who runs a creative studio in Portland, Oregon, with a focus on projection mapping as augmented reality, and a fascination with how we incorporate the past within the future.

Open Lecture: Pierluigi Dalla Rosa

By humans and algorithms
The interfaces that are surfacing content on our digital devices tend to be humorless, inexorably predictable and sometimes austere, and this is just one symptom of the direction that our overall digital culture is taking. In this talk we will explore how the convergence of natural and synthetic systems can push the thinking around interfaces, devices, memes, and digital culture throughout inspirational work and Pierluigi’s practice. 
 Pierluigi is a senior experience designer based in San Francisco, where he leads projects at the intersection between the natural and the technological, speculating about the future of education, human senses and automobiles.

When: Tue. Feb. 27th 2018, 17-18.

Real and Necessary Stories and Lies
Design is often the telling of a story and those stories are sometimes real and sometimes not. Design research, design fiction, even prototyping in design all play with the concept of what is real and what isn’t, what needs to be real to find a truth or what should be false to inspire or reveal a deeper truth or ask a more provocative question. As designers and makers of things we’re all going to need to think a little more deeply about what can and cannot, should and should not, be real and be fake.
