We live in an age where access to information, new ideas and education is fast, easy and in many cases free! Originally launched in 1984, TED has become a global phenomenon with events world wide, and hundreds of inspiring, motivational and educational TED talks.
We have collated a range of TED talks from over the last couple of decades or so, that have inspired me and my team.
A classic from 2005. Paul Bennett shares how design can be used to solve small problems that have huge effects.
Tony Fadell challenges us to think…. can things be better? Why are things the way they are? How can we improve?
Yves Behar tells his story and shares examples of where design tells a story, invokes emotions and creates conversation.
Ross Lovegrove had us laughing in the first minute. He unpacks “DNA”, Design, Nature Art and discusses “fat-free” design.
Margaret Gould Stewart from Facebook shares three rules for designing on a huge scale. We’ve seen often how a small change can create outrage in an app, she unpacks this and how design can have a large scale positive impact.
A call to action from Tim Brown, who unpacks “design thinking” as an approach for bigger impact.
As an agency we regularly take time to read books both fiction and non-fiction to help build up our “brain muscles” and to feed our creativity. Finding new ways to solve a problem, or to look at how we work on our products or as a team excites and motivates us.
