Data-driven design presented by Portable
Thu. 23 March 2017, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm AEDT
PRESENTED AS PART OF MELBOURNE DESIGN WEEK 2017
We believe humans are rich points of data. Yet the obsession with contextual observation is lengthening the process to actualise products and perpetuates subjectivity. The efficacy of data-driven design is understated: it can enhance a designer’s process across a range of design fields.
Andrew Apostola, co-founder of Portable, will talk about the strength of data-driven design process and the reactionary nature. How does it fit into the methodology of human-centered design? Where does it sit along the evolution of design? Find out more about the way we now need to approach design and tailor social impact into the intricate design of our products.
