2015 Core77 Design Awards

An annual celebration of
excellence in all areas of design.

The 2015 Core77 Design Awards is a celebration of excellence in all areas of design. The program enlists an international jury of design experts to honor those who present creative, innovative and forward thinking designs across 14 traditional and progressive categories.
Students and professionals alike are invited to enter their work so that established, as well as up-and-coming designers can gain visibility and recognition from the global design community. Winners of the Core77 Design Awards receive yearlong publicity across the Core77 network, a trophy as well as a free ticket to the 2015 Core77 Conference.

2015 marks the fifth year of the Core77 Design Awards and the introduction of a new honor from the program, the Core77 Community Choice. Those who are selected as winners, runners up and honorable mentions by the jury will be voted upon by the public for two weeks following the official winner’s announcements in May. The person or team to receive the most votes during the following two weeks will win the Community Choice title, plus airfare, accommodations and free ticket for one to the 2015 Core77 Conference in Los Angeles.
The Core77 Design Awards program is open for entries from February 9th until March 31st. Winners of the Core77 Design Awards will be announced on May 5th and public voting for the Community Choice title will begin on May 6th and run until May 20th. The winner of the Community Choice title will be announced the following week on May 26th.

Center for Systemic Design draft prospectus

    PROSPECTUS Center for Advanced Systemic Designing Introduction  Our futures can be approached in four ways: 1) drifting—adapting to whatever happens,  2) colliding—reacting and enduring,  3) retreating—backing away from undesirable states or conditions, or   4) advancing—navigating into desirable states-of-affairs. The norm nowadays is to drift, collide or retreat into the future. The fourth approach, the proactive approach, is the more apt response given the complex challenges and rising expectations that are the new norm for the foreseeable future.  The fourth approach depends on the agency of individuals who have the capacity to handle the challenge of securing desired outcomes in indeterminate situations on behalf of concomitant stakeholders and clients. They achieve this by serving—design agency—as members of design teams and design cohorts. These systemic designers are skilled polymaths who have the ability to create assemblies of essential elements into coherent whole system

Design, Wicked Problems & Throwness

Horst Rittel is one of the seminal residents in my 'Berkeley Bubble'. Recently a friend and colleague sent me an article about ‘double-wickedproblems’ . I have become ever more aware of the increasing number of references to ‘wicked problems’ in all forms of media that seem to have missed Rittel’s deeper insights . This brought up the concern I have about the use and miss-use of the term ‘wicked problem’.  The term ‘wicked problem’, first introduced by Rittel in West Churchman’s seminars at Berkeley, was in reference to his conceptualization of the impossible challenge of dealing with significant social issues using traditional, rational, ‘problem solving’ methods. In most cases what are miss-diangnosed as ‘wicked problems’ are actually complex or complicated problems that can be simplified or broken into smaller 'tame' problems allowing for a straight forward 'problem solving' approach to be taken. This approach is believed by many to be capable

'sketch-note feedback' from keynote

  This is a sketch-note done of a recent keynote of mine. It is an invaluable form of feedback for a presenter. It shows what someone else heard from the presentation, how topics were related and what concepts were foreground and what were background — all from the perspective of an attentive listener. This is an invaluable service. Much more valuable than just a transcript of critical reviews. The sketch-note author in this instance is Manisha Laroia — Thank you Manisha.
