Mediocrity vs. Excellence: What Separates Good From Great?

(8 years ago)
As a designer, especially one without a lot of experience, it’s normal to look at the designs of others and think how great their work is compared to our own. It’s a frustrating experience for many, especially when we can’t quite put our finger on why their design is so great when ours is merely [...]

The PadPivot: Rejected by Quirky, then finds Six-figure Success on Kickstarter

(8 years ago)
I have to admit I was skeptical when I heard about the PadPivot, a portable tablet stand Kickstarted by ID'er Jim Young and inventor Bernie Graham, but after seeing the video I'm sold. The well-considered device sits equally well on a table or your thigh, attaches and detaches easily, and folds up when not in use.The demo part of the video starts around 1:00, and the device displays more versatility as the video goes on. You may want to turn your speakers down if you're in an office, as they crank the music up.The project was rejected by Quirky, but that's Kickstarter's gain: The PadPivot has ten days left in its pledging process, but has already been funded by a factor of 1,000%. And Young and Graham are still expressing some Quirky-ness, as they're seeking public input on packaging ideas. Check 'em out here.(more...)

Early look at Jason Castriota's bad-ass Saab revamp

(8 years ago)
If any designer could be counted on to sex up Saab's staid product line, it's Jason Castriota. Seems like every time we write about the thirtysomething he's doing something different -- Pininfarina, Stile Bertone, setting up his own design shop -- and now he's focused his lasers on the Saab Phoenix, an all-wheel-drive concept car the public will see at the upcoming Geneva Auto Show.Described by Britain's Car magazine as "one of the few genuine surprises of the Geneva show," the Phoenix is the first creation of Saab's new design boss, Jason Castriota, who observed: "The Phoenix establishes a new reference point for the future of Saab product design.... This design aesthetic will shape and differentiate future models in the Saab portfolio."The teardrop-shaped Phoenix sports such design curiosities as butterfly-type doors, a scooped-out Kamm-back tail (claimed by Saab to evoke the original Sonett) and roof-mounted "winglets" said to channel airflow and reduce lift. The 2+2 cabin is described by Saab as "minimalist." In addition to a head-up display and ambient lighting, its most interesting feature is the use of Saab's new Android-powered IQon infotainment and communications system, which will debut next year on the redesigned 9-3.The redesigned 9-3, by the way, is slated for next year and is also expected to contain exterior design elements from the Phoenix.via inside line(more...)

The final session of The Economist's Big Rethink conference has David Butler, Vice President of Design for Coca-Cola, setting out the value of design to share value.Lego is the image he uses to illustrate the way in which design operates as an integral system -- connecting across the organisation, from product to packaging to advertising.It's a fairly basic introduction to the role of design, and should have been the first speech.Themes covered throughout the day include:- the potential of technology to address poverty and other major world challenges- the importance of the profit-motive- the individual in a networked world.- the need for a high-touch, high-trust business model in an increasingly globalised 'remote' world- the potential of the small and the local to grow.More on this tomorrow!(more...)
