Just say no to design

I fought it the whole way through design school (I have a Masters in Industrial Design), “it’s about planning not designing”.

Design is not open ended, planning allows for multiple outcomes, I don’t care what any body says, you can not design an open ended exhibit. I know I have tried, I have watched people try and they always fail. Open ended interactive exhibits are planned, not designed.

  1. You Observe
  2. You Document
  3. You Look for inspiration
  4. You plan the possible outcomes
  5. You play
  6. You discover
  7. You Build
  8. You Observe (Starting all over again)
