You design every day on projects for other people. You apply rigor and creativity, use form and strategy. But what if you focused these abilities to achieve goals of your own? What if you took on 2013 as your own design experiment?
Making a year is the ultimate design project, and now is the time to start. Holidays are a time to reflect. The New Year is a new beginning. A fresh start creates a space for action. Intentional action. It's what we do for clients isn't it? Step 1: Define and discover. Step 2: Design.
What do you want to accomplish next year as a designer? In this talk I'll share some ideas and strategies you can use to tackle the project of designing 12 months. What will spark monthly action? What are the necessary catalysts — ideas, people, information — to reach your outcomes?
