Donald Norman

Can I shake this man's hand?!

This article from Core77 address that designers need to be familiar with engineering, experimentation, technology and people AND not just be about drawing and sketching. He discusses that a new education system needs to be in place to address this 'crap' and actually solve problems properly and not just make it up!

This is music to my ears! I am a designer with an engineering degree which taught almost all of the above! We are here, just no one wants us... hopefully this is a sign of change.

Tin Foil Face

Awesome! An everyday useful product transformed into something quirky and unexpected. It is just standard tin foil molded onto a person's face. This i suspect to be molded on a plaster cast as doing it on a living breathing person causes difficulties...

Designer: Dominic Wilcox

I am pleasantly surprised to already be familiar with his work, especially his xylophone bin!
