My summer has officially started, and it feels good! Some of you, who follow me on instagram, might have noticed my trip to Norway. I have – together with the students attending New Nordic Design Thinking – been at a conference called Nordes (short for Nordic Design). Nordes’17 had a focus on Design and Power, and especially for me, there was a lot of focus on multidisciplinary collaboration.
This trip, for me, was amazing. You get to spend two whole days listening to clever people, just feeling overwhelmed. Especially the key speakers really got to me! Two of them; Dori Tunstall from OCAD university, and Yoko Akama, RMIT. These two amazing women really blew my head off! One speaking of respectful design, the other on mindfulness in the design process! Right down my alley!
Besides from that, I really got to experience Oslo. Haven’t been here before! THANK YOU, this was GREAT! And I had the great pleasure of taking a morning swim with one of the girls from NNDT that has become very dear to me! (she is also the one who took the picture)
I won’t say much more. On my private Instagram or my snapchat (L.Juul) one might experience a LOT of music, because I am attending the Tinderbox festival in Odense these days. I’ll check in afterwards! – It’s funny how it happens that every time I have a holiday, I get super buissy – Cheers!
