KISDtalk: “Criminalizing Design”
Is there anything designers need to learn from criminals and criminal investigators? David Spectre has a unique perspective into how two seemingly disparate worlds; design and criminal investigation are closely linked. He will demonstrate these links through real world examples taken from product and service design projects he has led.
David Spectre is a faculty member at Shenkar College in the Industrial Design department; he is the director of the Rozen Institute for Environmental Thinking and a founder and chief designer at 4C, a design studio that specializes in sustainable product design.
