This book is a collection of fourth year, studio projects through a practice based design studio model at RMIT University, Industrial Design Program.

Inclusive design focuses on an approach to design that allows people to engage with the built environment in an all-encompassing way. An approach to designing products and services that strives to improve the human condition. As designers we fabricate artefacts for people, however, how often do we consider a board spectrum of the global population and, the way they go about their daily lives?

This studio aims to develop students abilities to improve solutions and break down the inherent barriers, enabling humans to participate equally, confidently and independently in their day-to-day activities.

An inclusive approach to design offers new insights, where gaps in knowlage are identified, challenging conventional wisdoms; the way people interact with artefacts in their everyday lives. We strive to discover how to develop smarter more intuitive artefacts that can improve the way we all live.

 

 

Design & Thinking is a documentary produced by Muris Media, in collaboration with Taipei Design Center U.S. that explores the idea of “design thinking”!

The documentary explores the notions of design thinking from a business and design practitioner’s perspectives. The film draws on perspectives from Dr. Dan Formosa (smart design), Dave Kelley (ideo), Tim Brown (ideo) and Bill Moggridge (cooper-hewitt, national design museum) to name a few.

Some take home messages from the documentary are: the power of a stupid idea, designing with people not for them and, one of the most powerful visual statements in this documentary is the importance of prototyping your ideas to verify design intent.

 

As discussed on their site Design Thinking successfully explores “How do we fully engage organisations to think about the changing landscape of business, culture and society? Inspired by design thinking, this documentary grabs businessman, designers, social change-makers and individuals to portrait what they have in common when facing this ambiguous 21st century. What is design thinking? How is it applied in business models? How are people changing the worldwith their own creative minds? It is a call to the conventional minds to change and collaborate.”
