DSS caught up with design and tech guru John Maeda to talk about his famous and highly anticipated Design in Tech report: We talked about how design and tech can use the right tools and methods, have the right mindset and catch up, to have positive impact on the sustainable development goals and the planet and society in general. And how can designers and design change? Recorded at SXSW 2019 in Marriott Hotel, Austin, Texas.
This year, John’s report has stirred some controversy within the design community, as one of his main conclusions was that design wasn’t that important after all.
In this episode, listen to how I asked John about his report in the light of sustainability, change and cross cultural collaboration and responsibility.
