Design Department public lecture series started in 2009. The speakers are invited from a vast range of backgrounds to demonstrate the breadth of thinkers within the design industry.
Special edition, back-to-back talks this week:
'Pockets and Cities - Design, Popular Culture and the Obscure', a talk by Einar Sneve Martinussen (Oslo School of Architecture and Design)
'How to make something that matters', a talk by Nick Marsh (Sidekick Studios)
About the speakers:
Einar Sneve Martinussen is a designer and researcher working with cities and technology. His work includes visualisations, instruments and ?lms that explore how both design and urban life might be re-imagined as a networked city takes shape. Einar is a PhD fellow at the Oslo School of Architecture and Design, and is a part of the design studio Voy (http://www.voyoslo.com).
Nick Marsh is the Design Director at Sidekick Studios. He works with all kinds of organisations to help them use design to build better products and services that make more than money. He graduated from Goldsmiths BA Design in 2006. Making new products that people want to buy, and that help people solve useful problems, is really hard. Nick is going to share some experiences around how startups bring processes from the worlds of design, technology and business together to solve the massive problem of how to make stuff that matters.
