Here is a link I found via twitter. I only listened to the very first part because I was curious to hear what the answer to ‘what does ‘most innovative’ mean?’ Mainly because for the 1st year of my studies at University the course was titled ‘Innovative Product Design’ – I could barely pronounce innovative never mind define it. I think a lot people were the same, and still are unsure as to what exactly ‘innovative’ means. For that reason, I believe it has to be used quite cautiously… here come the link..
Some people might think cheeeeese! But I love this song!!

I was on Edinburgh College of Arts website the other day and came across last year’s degree show photos. I flicked through the classes profiles and it made me think about their course compared to ours.
Here are some of my notes I took from the profiles:
‘Product for a hedonist: gifts created around the idea of producing as many smiles as possible during the morning’- Mary Altard
‘Grieving design’- Matthew Coombes
‘Developed own methodology called Design by Darwinism that is based on evolution, natural selection and mutation.’ (This also ties in with the William Paley’s watchmaker argument, questioning where design is from, who designed the world, is it a matter of chance: see previous posts for more info)-Malin Kallman
This philosophical thought path continues with another graduate investigating…
‘The product Condition, an application of the human condition.’- Ryan MacPherson
Other designers I picked up on were
‘Investigating cutlery: is ceramics better than metals when tasting food
Remember a while back when I blogged about the Poundland/ Muji flat pack, card speakers?
Well guess what.. Jack Wills have jumped on the band wagon!!
