Last week, a group of us attended the IxDA London talk by Durrell Bishop, one of the most respected Designers in London. His enlightening talk explored a different approach to the design of products, software & services and more importantly made us think differently through a collaborative exercise later in the evening. Great night!
Durrell has been featured in Bill Moggridge’s classic Designing Interactions book, and is most famous for the landmark marble answering machine, as well as his contributions to Berg’s Little Printer and Cloudwash.
The night also included a talk by Dan Lockton on Energy Use.

Below are some photos and quotes from the London event.
As designers, too often we base our designs on our experience of how existing similar things work. We are too influenced by the low-hanging fruit of associations, brand and desire. Too many interfaces are based on the layout tools…Durrell Bishop
