Luke Sturgeon: Designing Experiential Futures

luke-1024x767

Every time we design something new, we contribute to the popular future vision. Our decisions tell customers what’s new and what’s next, we nudge people in new directions and over time we shape their behaviour’s. We can have profound positive impact on people’s lives, but we can also be the cause confusion and frustration if we’re not careful. We will look at new ways to apply design, prototyping, performance and futures thinking techniques to creatively and collectively experience possible futures. With these techniques we can better understand the present, discover emerging behaviours, test peoples responses to radical thinking and new ideas, challenge the popular vision, and most importantly imagine alternatives. In this talk Luke Sturgeon will explain why he is combining experience prototyping with speculative design and share his approaches, mistakes and learnings when designing experiential futures. Luke is a designer, lecturer and researcher based in London and a director of the strategic design futures consultancy Greyspace.

Sara Salsinha: Doing things Normally

SaraSalsina-768x576 (1)

As designers, we are trained to make decisions with the aim of creating experiences that have a positive impact on the lives of the people we design for. However, in striving to bring the best products and services to life, we often overlook our practice. What impact do our ways of working have in the life we live and in the world around us?

In this Open Lecture, Sara will explore NORMALLY’s ways of working and experiments into creating an inspiring and healthy balance between work (the love of design) and life (the love of family).

NORMALLY is a digital products and services design studio, pursuing some of the great unanswered questions about the value of data, the meaning of data and the impact it has on us as individuals and our society. Tackling such an unknown material can only be done through a process of speculation and experimentation.
Sara is a designer of experiences for people, formerly at the BBC and now happily designing products and services with the fantastic team at NORMALLY.
