Targeting product design for the developing world
20130809102905 0
Designing products for the developing world can be a hit-or-miss endeavor: While there may be a dire need for products addressing problems, such as access to clean water, sanitation and electricity, designing a product that consumers will actually buy is a complicated process. More often than not, such products — even those that are distributed at no charge — go unused due to poor quality, unreliability or differences in cultural expectations. And yet, an increasing number of organizations, companies and startups are targeting products at developing countries for one very practical reason: money. Rising economies like China and India represen ... Read More →

How to Sail Through Creative Uncertainty
3beff0a
LAND HO!: A still from "Embrace Ambiguity," a video by the old salts of IDEO's New York office. The team wrote the script, hand-built the sets, then filmed and edited the clip themselves. Fog is always present at IDEO, and not just at our San Francisco office. It's a metaphor we use for those iffy moments when a project team doesn’t know where they’re headed. Sometimes the cloudiness is caused by a big, abstract question the team is trying to answer, like “How might we improve education for preschool children?” Sometimes the uncertainty arises from the competing needs of the people we’re designing for—especially if they’re just one part of a c ...

On The Importance of Design at IBM: Love and Margins.
Ibm prof distribution
Tweet At the end of last year my founding partner dropped a quite outstanding post - The Importance of Software at IBM. In it Stephen analysed IBM’s 2011 financial results through the lens he has been using for most of the year (the end of the age of Software-only business models).  It should surprise nobody that Software is a higher margin business than Services, but it is still striking that by September 2015 fully 50% of IBM’s profit is expected to come from Software, especially given it currently only accounts for around 25% of total revenue. In answer to the larger question of how important software is to IBM, it’s clear that S ... Read More →

Looking Better, All The Time
Looking 525
By Maira Kalman, from On Looking The other day I mentioned in passing that I sometimes give myself a “looking assignment” when I’m doing a lot of task-oriented walking. Before that I praised a street-art subgenre that draws attention to easily overlooked features of the built environment, and recently complained about technology that aims to filter your gaze through algorithms and commerce. I’m hardly the first person to dilate on the virtues of seeing what others miss and/or seeing what nobody really wants us to see. But I mention all this to make clear that I was highly predisposed to enjoy the recent book On Looking: Eleven Walks ... Read More →
