Design in Technology

Design in Technology is the ‘leitmotiv’ of John Maeda. Here are the slideshares of the last 3 reports  and a few books he has published. A great read for designers, business people and the curious digital mind.

For people who have absolutely no time to read a book (also if it is only 100 pages), here is a Mindmap with the essence of the book:

Creative Code was the first book I have read about generative design. This was even before processing.org was invented/developed.

7 Principles of Holistic Product Design by Yves Béhar

There is a very nice article about Yves Behar and his 7 Principles of Holistic Product Design on TriplePundit’s coverage of the 2011 Opportunity Green Conference in Los Angeles, California.

Here is the first one:

1.  Start with questions, not answers.
Instead of trying to design a product from a detailed client brief that dictates the answers, the design process should start with a few simple questions. For example, Puma asked the question, “What can we do to improve the sustainability of our already very successful shoe box?” This question spurred an in-depth exploration of the company’s logistics, manufacturing, distribution, and customer interactions with the product.  see the other 6 and the whole story on Triple Pundit

I also added this principles to the Inspiring principles for design, life and more Mindmap on Mindmeister.com.
