Enlightenment means many things. A state of wisdom, a well informed understanding, an elevation of knowledge. Enlightenment often includes mindfulness, the practice of being present and focused in the moment. Design can sometimes feel nearly opposite, out of the box, haphazard, abstract, and creative, pulling inspiration from a variety of sources and situations and thrown on the wall like spaghetti to see if it sticks. How can we enlighten our design process? Join me for this talk where we explore three key tenants to successful a design project: Setting an intention, mindfulness, and reflection.
