This certainly looks like it will be worth a watch…”Design & Thinking” is a documentary about…you guessed it, “design thinking”.

About the film:

“Design Thinking was applied as a term and methodology by a design firm in 2008. It was received as a tool to solve every problem, from daily life decisions to business challenges to world hunger problems. Attention and debates followed; some insisted on design education in all K-12 schools, some declared it is just marketing tool for that firm, some hoped it would turn his company into Apple. Some said it’s nothing new, just a new packaging of how creative people do things.”

You will all know of my admiration for the Eamses creative process…(if not, read my latest post about them HERE!). I found this awesome Q&A from 1972 in which Charles says it all when he answers the question: What are the boundaries of Design? – “What are the boundaries of problems?”

I think my favorite theme that the Eamses often touch on is the idea of process and action and in this Q&A when asked if design is a method of general expression, he answered: “No – it is a method of action.” Pay attention to the process. Learn from it. And just do it!


I found this article over at Brain Pickings and this is what they had to say:
“Legendary design duo Charles and Ray Eames shaped the mid-century modern aesthetic and influenced the voice of design for decades to come. They were also prolific filmmakers, perhaps best known for the iconic Powers of Ten film. In this fantastic Q&A from 1972, found on the excellent compilation The Films of Charles & Ray Eames and reproduced here in House Industries’ typography journal, Madame L’Amic of the Musee des Art s Decoratifs in Paris asks Charles Eames 29 questions about design, covering everything from the balance between form and function to the role of computers in creativity to the impact of influences. His answers are a timeless treasure trove of wisdom and insight on all that design is and should be.”

They are indeed. Check out the whole post HERE!

April 5, 2011 //

I love this collection over at The 99 Percent, and especially the “Procrastination” video by John Kelly carries a lot of truth…(although, what’s wrong with making tea?) …


Elizabeth Gilbert’s TED talk on creative genius is one of my top go-to talks for inspiration…


From The 99 Percent: “At 99%, we try to demystify the creative process. To show you the real inner-workings of how ideas are made to happen by sharing the thought processes and creative practices of great achievers. Here, with the help of our readers, we’ve rounded up some of the best videos on idea execution from artists, writers, designers, storytellers, researchers, and chocolatiers.”
