What are you curious about?

What do you want to know more about
by this time next year?
Once the basic skills have been mastered,
designers can use their imaginations to
explore and create their own masterpieces.
The more things designers know
about, the more they can use them in
creative thinking and play
The fewer materials and choices
available, the more imagination is
needed by the designer.
explore new ideas and skills...
                                          make lots of
                         use worlds of different things
   based on activities   fantasy to inspire
   and objects already
   familiar
             a vital part of the creative
             process is to ‘make’ something
                                          learn how things are made
try out your own ideas learn from our failures
                                                         experiment
       express creativity by drawing
       pictures, writing stories…      play on their own... or with
                                       a group of real friends
      inspiration for creativity comes from many different sources
look outside your own experience
                        versions of everyday things allow
                        children to create their own worlds

“You might summarize all of the skills

 I spent 20 years studying great global
 leaders, and that was the big common

A number of the innovative entrepreneurs
         also went to Montessori schools, where
         they learned to follow their curiosity




http://blogs.wsj.com/ideas-market/2011/04/05/the-montessori-mafia/
Montessori taught me the joy of
                                discovery… It’s all about learning on
                                your terms, rather than a teacher
                                explaining stuff to you. SimCity
                                comes right out of Montessori…




videogame pioneer Will Wright
We both went to Montessori school,
                               and I think it was part of that training
                               of not following rules and orders, and
                               being self-motivated, questioning
                               what’s going on in the world, doing
                               things a little bit differently.




Google’s founders Larry Page
and Sergei Brin
…that discovery mentality is precisely
                      the environment that Montessori seeks
                      to create.

                      Similarly, Amazon’s culture breathes
                      experimentation and discovery. Mr.
                      Bezos often compares Amazon’s strategy
                      of developing ideas in new markets to
                      “planting seeds” or “going down blind
                      alleys.” Amazon’s executives learn and
                      uncover opportunities as they go. Many
                      efforts turn out to be dead ends, Mr.
Amazon’s Jeff Bezos
                      Bezos has said, “But every once in a
                      while, you go down an alley and it opens
                      up into this huge, broad avenue.”

Styles tend to not only separate men — because they
have their own doctrines and then the doctrine became
the gospel truth that you cannot change. But if you do
not have a style, if you just say: Well, here I am as a
human being, how can I express myself totally and
completely? Now, that way you won't create a style,
because style is a crystallization. That way, it's a process
of continuing growth.

Today we know that cholera is spread through water, but in the early
1800s people weren’t sure. John Snow’s cholera map helped to show
that contaminated wells were at the center of outbreaks. His research
helped save countless lives and set the foundation for the field of
epidemiology.

“By rearranging the board, the player acquired information that was otherwise
 difficult to perceive. Although she could have acquired this information by
 mentally simulating the move, it was simpler and faster to physically carry out
 the move and then reverse it. More importantly, the problem space is now partly
 in the head and partly in the world, with interaction linking and blending these
 two spaces together.

Interacting with the environment—in this example, rearranging it to address an
immediate epistemic need—can generate insight into a problem by treating the
environment as a resource for reducing cognitive complexity. Instead of relying
exclusively on an internal representation, the player creates, and operates on, an
external representation of the problem space. Thus, interaction creates both
physical and informational changes in the environment. The player can then
leverage these informational changes to simplify cognitively complex tasks.”

  Wurman recognized decades
  before the "information age" that
  people were becoming
  "inundated with data but starved
  for the tools and patterns that
  give them meaning." As a result,
  Wurman defined the Information
  Architect as "someone who
  enables data to be transformed
  into understandable information."

SOME EXAMPLES…
Biomimic Infographic
by Pete Denman


The rings on a tree, the strata on
earths crust, the pedals of a flower, the
depth of clutter on your desk, even the
lines on your face all tell a story. These
details when viewed in the organisms
whole give the viewer a history as well
as an indication of well being. As
members of society and mother
nature, we all inherently understand
how the fresh new green buds on a
plant indicate growth and the older
weathered look of a tree trunk gives
indication of a harsh winter. These are
things built into understanding of the
world. We as designers can take
advantage of this natural “visual
affordance” and develop a user
experience that is can convey large
amounts of information that is easily
understandable.

                                             thing to waste.”




 So on one hand, honey is an amazingly
“sophisticated and efficient food source.
 On the other hand, it's bee backwash.”

PAINT JARS
The Walt Disney Studios was
the first to experiment with
technicolor, which was first
done in 1932 for "Flowers and
Trees".
"The Old Mill" was the first cartoon on which Walt used the multiplane

   This camera is one of the three
   original cameras used to achieve
   depth in animated films.
1934-1938
in 1934 Disney began planning a full-length

The first film to use an underwater
camera was Walt's third live action
film-20,000 Leagues Under the Sea.
GRIFFITH PARK BENCH
Walt watched his daughters on a carousel in Griffith Park from this
bench, which is where he thought up the idea of a family-friendly
park... (Disneyland)!
Around here, we don't look backwards
for very long. We keep moving forward,
opening up new doors and doing new things,
because we're curious... and curiosity keeps
leading us down new paths.

  • 4. Euro IA 2012 What are you curious about? What do you want to know more about by this time next year?
  • 5.
  • 6.
  • 7.
  • 8.
  • 9.
  • 10.
  • 11. Once the basic skills have been mastered, designers can use their imaginations to explore and create their own masterpieces.
  • 12.
  • 13. The more things designers know about, the more they can use them in creative thinking and play
  • 14.
  • 15. The fewer materials and choices available, the more imagination is needed by the designer.
  • 16.
  • 17. explore new ideas and skills... make lots of use worlds of different things based on activities fantasy to inspire and objects already familiar a vital part of the creative process is to ‘make’ something learn how things are made try out your own ideas learn from our failures experiment express creativity by drawing pictures, writing stories… play on their own... or with a group of real friends inspiration for creativity comes from many different sources look outside your own experience versions of everyday things allow children to create their own worlds
  • 21. N CE! NEVER STOP IA EN AL ER IT EF R PLAYING AND LEARNING
  • 23. “You might summarize all of the skills we've noted in one word: "inquisitiveness." I spent 20 years studying great global leaders, and that was the big common denominator.” http://blogs.hbr.org/hbr/hbreditors/2009/09/how_do_innovators_think.html
  • 24. “You might summarize all of the skills we've noted in one word: "inquisitiveness." I spent 20 years studying great global leaders, and that was the big common denominator.” http://blogs.hbr.org/hbr/hbreditors/2009/09/how_do_innovators_think.html

  • 27. A number of the innovative entrepreneurs also went to Montessori schools, where they learned to follow their curiosity http://blogs.wsj.com/ideas-market/2011/04/05/the-montessori-mafia/
  • 28. Montessori taught me the joy of discovery… It’s all about learning on your terms, rather than a teacher explaining stuff to you. SimCity comes right out of Montessori… videogame pioneer Will Wright

Mr. Bezos often compares Amazon’s strategy of developing ideas in new markets to “planting seeds” or “going down blind alleys.” Amazon’s executives learn and uncover opportunities as they go. Many efforts turn out to be dead ends, Mr. Amazon’s Jeff Bezos Bezos has said, “But every once in a while, you go down an alley and it opens up into this huge, broad avenue.”

But if you do not have a style, if you just say: Well, here I am as a human being, how can I express myself totally and completely? Now, that way you won't create a style, because style is a crystallization. That way, it's a process of continuing growth.

Although she could have acquired this information by mentally simulating the move, it was simpler and faster to physically carry out the move and then reverse it. More importantly, the problem space is now partly in the head and partly in the world, with interaction linking and blending these two spaces together. Interacting with the environment—in this example, rearranging it to address an immediate epistemic need—can generate insight into a problem by treating the environment as a resource for reducing cognitive complexity. Instead of relying exclusively on an internal representation, the player creates, and operates on, an external representation of the problem space. Thus, interaction creates both physical and informational changes in the environment. The player can then leverage these informational changes to simplify cognitively complex tasks.” — KARL FAST, “Interaction and the epistemic potential of digital libraries”

  • 130. Biomimic Infographic by Pete Denman The rings on a tree, the strata on earths crust, the pedals of a flower, the depth of clutter on your desk, even the lines on your face all tell a story. These details when viewed in the organisms whole give the viewer a history as well as an indication of well being. As members of society and mother nature, we all inherently understand how the fresh new green buds on a plant indicate growth and the older weathered look of a tree trunk gives indication of a harsh winter. These are things built into understanding of the world. We as designers can take advantage of this natural “visual affordance” and develop a user experience that is can convey large amounts of information that is easily understandable. http://www.slideshare.net/mprove/ixd12denman
