Defining moments

Defining AR and Historic trail We construct our reality around us through language. Language shapes and contains our ideas and our meanings. When I tell someone about my project, the person I’m talking to makes assumptions about what I do because of the associations or definitions that “design” or “interaction” or “animation” has.

Sketchbook project

Here I’ll be posting ideas, sketches and thoughts as I ramble on paper and ink.  As part of my process and research, I’m trying to keep organized by having different notebooks: an everyday, passport-sized notebook that I carry around and write down ideas on the go like thoughts sparked by discussions and just everyday stuff.…

What is fake…

Recap: One for Two

KHiO+AHO+BI Joint Project As designers we need to work in teams. Sometimes it is with designers from another area within design, and most of the times, it is with business men, marketers, accountants, architects (or all the different types of clients we might have). At KHIO we had a joint project with BI, a Business…
