Richard Thaler’s Nobel Prize is a win for good design

by Erin O’Loughlin Richard Thaler’s 2017 Nobel Economics Prize on Monday was met with more buzz around the offices of our design agency than is usual for economics news.

Reflections on the LIFT conference on Core77

A few weeks ago, I went to the LIFT conference in Geneva, Switzerland. It took me a some time to write up all my (personal) thoughts on the presentations, but now the writing is done and the result is online on Core77. Thank you Laurent, Nicolas and others in the LIFT team, for once again […]

People-centred design in times of frugality

What are the profound socio-cultural changes currently taking place and are people-centred designers well equipped to help companies and institutions address this new context? The current economic recession is turning out to be very severe (The Guardian evokes the spectre of a 1930s-style depression), with rich countries being the biggest losers, and this slowly unfolding […]

Where to post?

It gradually became a much more precise resource, focused on user-centred design and experience design and has found a loyal […]

Writing for Core77

Just in case you don’t know, Experientia partner Mark Vanderbeeken also writes for Core77, the online design magazine. He takes a somewhat different angle there and post items on “Core” that do not really fit with the Putting People First themes. His latest post is about a new Milan-conceived desktop concept (which actually is also […]
