12th October Ethics isn’t just for philosophers—designers need to take responsibility, too A few years ago, I was doing PhD research and interviewing designers around the world to identify the limiting factors in designers integrating sustainability into their work. Nearly everyone I interviewed had, at some point, learned about the systemic implications of rapid innovation and how to make better decisions. More 12th October How to design a design museum, with OK-RM, Fernando Gutiérrez, Morag Myerscough and more OK-RM’s Oliver Knight will be talking about the graphic design for the Fear and Love: Reactions to a Complex World exhibition, while Studio Hato’s Ken Kirton will chat about his work on the Beazley Designs of the Year show and Ian Cartlidge will discuss his work on the wayfinding design. More 12th October Six Common Freelancing Myths Debunked Just as the freelance industry is exploding with undiscovered, talented (and some not so talented) people, the myths that come with it are thriving as well. It’s funny how I even get to hear opposite views about this profession. While Nancy believes freelancers make tons of money in no time, Drew says that they are barely able to pay their bills and taxes. Jennifer claims that you have all the time on your hands, but then Ross stated that the work and stress never ends. Who to believe? More 10th October The 10 Golden Rules of Simple, Clean Design There’s a lot more to simple design than you think. A product such as the iPhone may appear clean and unobtrusive to the naked eye, but there’s a lot going on beneath the surface that most people don’t know about. Nor do they need to.

10th October Suitable for all ages: why we need age neutral design We hear a great deal about the looming ‘demographic crisis’ that is about to put Western societies under extreme pressure as the proportion of older people grows. In general, we are living longer and developing ever more complex medical needs. But while there are obvious challenges ahead, there are also opportunities in this shift: opportunities to rethink not just our attitudes to ageing but to work, family and how we think about our lives. More 7th October The Most Innovative Student Design Of 2016 Professional designers aren't the only ones coming up with smart solutions to intractable problems. The Innovation by Design Award winners and finalists in this year's student category are tackling everything from food waste to high-speed transportation to the smart home. If these students are tomorrow's design leaders, we'll all be in good hands. More 7th October Macguffin, the publication celebrating anonymous design objects Macguffin is a publication for the fanatic, each issue celebrating a design object that often remains anonymous. Previous issues have investigated the bed and the window, but the third considers the functional and artistic use of the trusty rope. It explores “the fascinating life of the object that binds together pieces of furniture, K2 climbers, redneck cars, Japanese eggs and Mars rovers”. More 6th October This Year’s ADC Young Guns Demonstrate What a Designer Can Be in 2016 From photographers to animators, directors to interaction designers, 2016’s list of ADC Young Guns is a deliciously mixed bag of some of the most talented and enviably youthful creative types from around the globe. While other 30 under 30 models are often a predictable mix of big industry names getting a warm slap on the back, this year’s Young Guns reveal an impressive amount of talent that has so far avoided the limelight.
