    Welcome to the studio unbound. Today I am going to give you an insight into how to design your own network
  • Online I am known as @redjotter - It is called an avataar and you upload it to all social networking sites. We see it as an oppotunity for creatives to put their personal stamp on your profile. the colour red is very much associated with my brand - something that ties all the fragmented sites together.
    product design / service design / masters /
  • Today is all about me working with you so all our toolkits can grow and get bigger
    and by toolkit -I mean all the stuff you know and all your skills.
    I am going to talk to you about how I have used online media tools and networking to develop as professional designers.
    Joining us via skype will be James Porteous who I will introduce to you a little later on
  • if you only take one thing away with you today make is be this - the most important thing when embarking upon any project -
    particularly when the project is you career - is your MINDSET.
    talk thru each one.
  • These are an example of some of the tools we use - twitter - hands up who as a twitter account - hands up who actually uses their account.
    flickr account - an online photobank
    facebook - believe it or not the majority of designers from industry have a facebook - so what we would advise it have a think about what pictures are on your account ...
    and the comments you make
    skype - lets you talk to anyone anywhere in the world for free - brilliant.

  • So to decide what tools are right for you - you have to think about who you are as a person and a professional. Take time out to take a step back and consider how other people perceive you - peers as well as employers. Think about what you CAN do as well as what you CANT do. Are there any gaps in your knowledge, learning or experience? How are you going to fill them? Do you like what you see? If not..change it!
  • Important to think about branding yourself visually -
    Discuss mypolice brand = david tenant = tux and converse.
    “will people laugh at me if i want to be like mrs doubtfire.”
  • Where do you want to be 2 years from now? 5 years from now? What do you want to get out of this? No one is going to tell you if you are going the wrong way? So what can you do to make sure you are on the track right for you? ask questions - do research - talk to people - your online network is a quick and easy way for you to do this.
  • Just to make sure you believe us - we are going to show you some example of things that have happened to us as a result of our social networks.
    So this was the blog post that I wrote on the very first day of my masters course -
  • This is a snapshot of people I have met online and the regular conversations we have online. I share all my thinking, findings and insights with these practitioners and that adds great depth to the work that I do.

  • how many design students do you know who say ‘i can’t write’ ‘ i hate the writing part’ Worse - the number of students who say "I can't write because I'm creative". Ohhhkaaay... I never thought that people who write aren't being creative but whatever.The key to being a good writer is having something to say. It could be an opinion, a thought, a link to something you've seen, or anything.
    The second key is just doing it. Blogging is easy. Some would say too easy. But it's good practice for writing and, if that's not a good enough incentive (I know, it isn't) it's certainly one of the best ways of meeting people and networking. The idea that writing and design are somehow mutually exclusive is the sort of crap that really should be challenged. Designers write. End of story. So if you're not writing, you should be.
  • response from industry - this was an article recently written in business week by Fred Callopy - it sparked of an exciting debate - on my blog - 12 comments from the author himself and practitioners from around the world.
  • James is a designer from Glasgow school of Art, studying on the Product Design course, with interests ranging from traditional areas of the subject, through to aspects such as service and interaction design. Outside of this, he works as a photographer, covering sports, news, music for various publications and clients, both online and off.
  • I’d like to share my Masters project as twitter played a very important role in it. I created a service called making service sense
    a service for graduates to make sense of what people think and talk about when it comes to service design.
    The experience is made up of a website ( 3 parts ) , a book - publication and visit to universities and collleges
  • So how does twitter come into all this? It was important to me that my exhibition space reflected the nature of service design - very unique to the person using it -
    never static - always evolving - because alot of my research was about talking to people deigners and non designers about what service means to them
    I wanted to keep this conversation going - so I created a wall of discourse so the visitors to my show couls see answeres to typical questions - how do you make money from this?
    don;t designers make tables and chairs? Then it was there turn to ask a question - I tweeted it to the service design industry - and added their answer to the wall.

  • snook - letters - social media rehab
  • mypolice - an online feedback tool for the police
  • "I know how much of my time I already spend answering emails - surely this will just eat into even more time?"
  • “ oh I’m still studying so no one would listen to what I have to say”
    “i don’t know what to write”
  • feel you've lost your identity
  • what’s an avataar? what’s a hashtag? can i start small?
    Lisa: How you maintain such a strong online presence, do you find it difficult to maintain it? Does it become a way of life?
    Lisa: Do you think that there is a danger of these social networking sites becoming over saturated, thus diminishing their worth? frm
  • I wanted to end by saying that it is important to manage your time offline and online - of course like anything these tools can be distracting and addictive if you don’t use
    them wisely... it’s soo important to remember how powerful face to face conversation is - to think about your tone of voice and facial expressions when you are talking about
    your work to someone. so on that note. we would like to shut the laptop lid and have a conversation..
  • thank you . questions.
