David Carson on design + discovery

Posted in Assigned Video, Business, Design, Design Education, LinkedIn, Process, Teaching, Video by ayanabaltrip on 2010/07/27

As I move into another semester of teaching design students, I am continuing to chronicle here design resources and sources of inspiration to share with them and expand my arsenal of great resources. In my research, I have logged a myriad of great Ted Talks given on the subjects of design and creativity.

I’m starting off my new quest in this vain with a 2003 Ted Talk by David Carson on design and discovery, What I like about Carson is the fact that he came into graphic design from a background in sociology and secondary education. (I taught high school government.) For me, having come to the design field without following the traditional training route gave him a clean slate with which to approach his work.

In this talk, he shares his process of discovery and its relationship to design. I will continue to feature talks by great designers as time goes on.

Enjoy!
