Skills I deem important today
Critical and Speculative Design refuses to accept todays products, services and design practice as given. Judging from a prospection of all possible futures, Speculative Design challenges the status quo by encouraging change and the shift from a probable to a preferable future.
Considerable knowledge of art and culture lays the foundation for transdisciplinary research on sociological, anthropological and philosophical implications of our increasingly digital world. How design is perceived depends on a common cultural ground.
Creative Coding is the utilization of programming and processing in the context of visual arts and design. These skills are transferrable to any programming language and connect design with the field of data science. Preparing, analyzing and visualizing data as well as cultivating programmatic methods become equally important for designers today.
In a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous market organizations need to respond quickly and manoeuvre unforeseen challenges. Creating an environment that enables team members of different disciplines to collaborate, learn from each other and make decisions is the key to resilience.
