The speakers were engaged in a few rounds of questions after their presentation. An ice breaker question box was used to jumpstart discussions as it was tossed from one member of the audience to the other. The first edition was kicked off with four speakers and some highly captivating topics ranging from sketching to mountaineering.
Serj enlightened us about his brilliant freehand sketching skills and illustrated how he moved from the basic pencil sketching to digital sketching. Every piece of artwork that he shared was visualized and illustrated with meticulous detail and visual balance that only the very passionate possess.
Noel took us through conversations he overheard at the hallways at MIT during his research at the Mobile Experience Lab. From overnight wooden rollercoasters built by students purely on impulsive desires to create, to long drawn research projects of public spaces and interactive tables.
Sandeep showed us how we could work and collaborate better with the developers at the company. A topic that hasn´t been given much attention until recently. The discussion covered the benefits of using a collaborative tool like Zeplin as well as an inspiration platform and documentary called Design & Thinking.
Marte shared with us about her love for mountaineering and her crazy adventures from way up high. It´s her love for mountaineering that led her to design for one of her favorite brands. Somehow, there´s always a special memory created when something you´re passionate about leads you to find work with it.
