    Buzzing Round' The Hive

    Posted by: Caleb under Culture, Design

    Ah, that CES time of the year has once again come and gone. The air was dry and smelled like smoke, perfume, money, and fun. For a conference that is storied to be dying out, you couldn’t tell by the massive numbers of product nerds buzzing around the hive.

    Ah, that CES time of the year has once again come and gone. The air was dry and smelled like smoke, perfume, money, and fun. For a conference that is storied to be dying out, you couldn’t tell by the massive numbers of product nerds buzzing around the hive.

    Navigating through the honeycomb, I noticed lots of sexy, technically perfect machines. But missing was the improved entertainment, content control, the blend of other devices, and the use of killer entertainment to go with my hot new OLED.

    As always, phones were hot…. but the actual phones were more than outnumbered by the tons of phone cases and accessories. Of course these were targeted at the fashion end of gadgets. Fitness minded and stylish wearable gadgetry were well accounted for.

    I found the high-end stereo corridor the biggest guilty pleasure. We cruised through the audiophile snobbery — nothing but the best, the Aston Martins of stereo. With marketing speak about 5-axis CNC machines the bragging points come from the perfection of materials, machines, and cabinet making at levels unseen Theses products are the real industrial eye-candy.

    My thoughts to make for a more intriguing CES, would be the inclusion of entertainment moguls and other content makers to transform the CES gadgetry into stories, art, entertainment, and not just sweet “electronics” but a comedy, a drama with real heroes and actors! Bring the film and art that creates our backdrop on life to the excellent scale and design of consumer electricity…Lifestyle, emotion, and culture – that’s what we are all working on.

    All up in CCA's Master of Design Program!

    Posted by: Caleb under Design

    I just finished teaching my Fall 2012 class at CCA. We put the students through the paces of great design, and crazy research.

    My goals for the students were to have them find for themselves, the right balance of strong points of view, conviction and the desire to change the world. The students busted out their big ideas this week, finishing a 4 month master's thesis journey. It comes with great reward and I'm super proud of the result…Let's see if they let me back into the classroom in 2012!

    The Shaggies!

    Posted by: Tom Galbraith under Design, News

    The Shaggies are the fresh and newly updated Northwest Design Invitational awards. Because we like bright and shiny new things, we entered a few products to be judged. And BAM, we walked away with a Bronze in the category of "Design for Information and Communication" for the A30 Headset, and an Honorable Mention in the category of "Experiments/Concepts/Zombies" for our Kitchenscape.

    Can't wait to party, participate and show solidarity with our Northwestern design brothers and sisters next year.
