Abstract / Summary

[STÖRUNG] – Disruption / Design / Process

We all have our own ‘design process’ – the way we go about doing what we do as designers. Most of the time, our energies are spent working subjectively within this process (discover, define, develop, deliver, etc.) in pursuit of an idea that is then realised and published for the world to see. However, it is less common for us to take the time to step back from the ‘doing’ of design, and to objectively ask questions about ‘what’ or ‘why’ we design a particular way.

Werkwoche: International Design Week
14. – 18. November 2016

The [ S T Ö R U N G ] workshop is an intensive opportunity for you to consider the ‘what’ and ‘why’ behind your existing design process, and to look for ways of building on and developing new patterns of working. You will spend time considering the things you already know and utilise; Who am I? How do I work? What we know about processes already? Etc.), some of the barriers we face to our creativity (What gets in the way?), and then move through less familiar (and sometimes uncomfortable) experiences that consider emotion, language and expression as tools for new thinking.

Focus: Design & Creative Processes / Idea Generation / Design Thinking

We now have access to more tools and technologies than at any other point in history and, if you believe the hype, ‘anyone’ can be a designer. However, beyond the software and increasing tendency towards visual pastiche, the central component of design – that of the creative ‘idea’ still remains elusive to many. In a world where change is the only constant, the need for designers who can move beyond themselves and continually re-invent the way they work has never been so important. This talk will look at some of the history, tools and methods either used or championed by staff at Falmouth University to celebrate the notion of ‘design process’ alongside that of ‘design artefact’.
