Das Ende

The question of when a project formally ends is one that I usually take for granted. But this project has been different – our client was real, the budget was concrete and it all felt true.

Berlin felt like a whole new place in the sunshine…

I have learned a whole new way of designing that was really challenging, but ultimately very liberating. It challenged the process I have been taught  since high school . We didn’t find a problem – we didn’t evaluate concepts – we let all ideas and possibilities collide. At times this felt too random, too unstructured – but the vast amount of ideas generated in such a short space of time was nothing like I had experienced before.

RIP and MIX places the focus on the process of existing design knowledge, objectified in the form of existing products and services. I have a new found respect for that knowledge.
