Just a few amazing TED videos.

Ted speakers

Thanks to Bruce Nussbaum for this link to some TED conference videos. I’ve been listening and watching these all morning. I found of particular interest the talks given by Alex Steffen (amazing design solutions to the sustainability issues like a straw that filters water as you drink through it), Jeff Bezos (suggesting a new analogy of the future of the web), Paul Bennett (a great lesson for interaction architects of really putting yourself in the place of the “end-user”).

I just finishing watching this one from Al Seckel about optical illusions and messing with the way the brain’s wired. Great visual play for designers.

Below is I found the jaw-dropping from a sustainable innovation standpoint:

Andrew Davies

Drew's degrees in Illustration, 2D animation and Broadcast Design, and his volleyball skillz mean he can get your design done and play well with others at the same time. He’s the Creative Director at Paragon and will call you out if you start hanging out with shady-looking fonts and messing around with whacked-out color palettes.
