How does a drone become a drone? Prototyping… where thinking becomes doing. Discover the tools, methods, and disciplines behind prototyping with host Jonathan Morgan as he dives into epic stories of prototyping success and failure.

The idea of putting a bunch of intellectuals in a room to throw out ideas like Don Draper in an episode of Mad Men is a thing of the past. As discussed in our last episode, focus is key in channeling our creative energy in ways that align with the goals of our potential end-users. This week Jonathan invites Drew Boyd, author of "Inside the Box," to discuss how we can leverage focus to drive powerful, collaborative creative-sessions and workshops; ones that rely less on the direct expertise of participants, and more on the channeling of that expertise through the artifacts of focus: opportunity, empathy, and context.
Host and human-centered designer Jonathan Morgan invites researcher, Indi Young, author and co-founder of Adaptive Path, to discuss the concept of focus. Join us in exploring the limitations of designers and their deep interest in the people who will be using the things they create. Through the lenses of focus, Empathy and Opportunity, Jonathan and Indi delve into the world of design with mastery, precision and… well, great focus. *Editor's note: There is a clarification for the 17:20 minute mark. Indi says: "You can start to recognize at what level people are speaking. Are they speaking about their opinions? Are they talking about their preferences? Are they mentioning statements of fact? Or are they explaining how to do something?" This should be followed up by the phrase: "Because you need to push past these. The inner reasoning, reactions, and guiding principles are what you're aiming for."
In this introductory episode of Design Everywhere, host and human-centered designer Jonathan Morgan invites guest, Karl Fast, author and Director of Information Architecture at Normative Design in Toronto, to discuss the new reality of design. Together, they will answer some of the design world’s most intriguing questions like: What is the concept behind Design for Understanding? How does simplicity play a part? What is the role of a designer? What is the cost of information when considering a design?
