Good design benefits us all – welcome to open DesignTalks lecture series
In an increasingly complex world, being able to simplify and make complexity understandable is extremely useful and valuable. Good design strives for best possible sense-making, usability, attractiveness and style.
DesignTalks series will have eight lectures during December 2021–May 2022. Each event will have its own theme discussing the relevance of design in different contexts such as sustainable development goals, corporations, cities, business-to-business, research, accessibility, creative projects, and many more.
All lectures will feature a speaker from Aalto University and one visiting professional. The first three talks will be held via Zoom, you can check the links for these talks below.
The series will complement and continue our introductory on-line course to design: Design Bits. The series of talks is open for everyone, but Aalto students can get one ETCS study credit upon participating to all lectures and returning a learning diary.
Lecture series is organized by the Design Inside initiative in collaboration with Radical Creativity. If you have any questions about this event, send a message to Paulo Dziobczenski - Designer in residence at Aalto University: [email protected]
