From the self-expression of Facebook, to the network of “Me” on TiVo and subsequently become responsible for the final “deliverable”. Everyone Designs….Globally We think the impact of our work on a global scale is in direct relationship in our ability to openly share what we know. Leverage the brand of “you” Unlikely individuals are becoming strong, authentic voices for their communities. Brands will attempt to leverage these voices in their own attempts at becoming authentic. We need to allow for experimentation with self-expression Creating and sharing have become global product and service platforms. Current forms of self-expression will need to evolve as people find their voice. We think platforms not features will dramatically move forward. Conference on Designing for User Experience
