The design dialogue
Can we talk to design and get a response back from it. I think it's a yes. But not in a crazy way, where you imagine some on talking to you, but in a more subtle form of exchange. Over the years of being in this field, some of the best interactions have been during the process of designing. It teaches you to be responsive to the problem and helps you understand the level of aesthetics needed for application.
Using this experience, one can share ideas with co-designers and interested people with great enthusiasm. Some of my clients have benefitted to a great extent on the basis of these design dialogues. It becomes a successful transfer, when the key inferences from such a conversation become the guidelines, for future design endeavors.
Next time, listening to the design will be fun and meaningful.
