Design Thinking Inspiration Talk

Talk_Image-Blog_update

NEW DATE – 12th June | 7pm - 8pm
We are looking forward to an exciting lecture about Design Thinking by Flavia Bleuel.

Flavia is a program manager at the HPI Academy. She is designing and leading innovation workshops and projects for professionals, and coaches students at the HPI School of Design Thinking. She was a research assistant and lecturer at the Berlin University of the Arts in Communication in Social and Economic Contexts. For further information visit her website

Design Thinking is a systematic innovation approach to complex problems in all areas of life. Instead of starting with the issue of feasibility like a lot of companies do, the users' wishes and needs are the focus of the process. Design Thinkers see the problem with the eyes of the user and try to immerse into their situation.

Design Thinking calls for constant feedback between the team designing a solution and the target group. Design Thinkers talk to the users and observe their behaviour and routines closely. Solutions and ideas are communicated and made tangible in the form of prototypes early on. Through this process, potential users can test them and give valuable feedback long before completion or market launch. 

Come and enjoy an highly enriching and inspiring talk.

User Experience Innovation is our project-centred approach. For the first time it combines the desirable aspects of Design Thinking and that which is technologically feasible and economically viable – the result is the fa-System.

fa Member – come and join our UXI Workshop. We will bring you up to speed on the User Experience Innovation Process, how to use it in your projects and how to choose the right tools and methods.

We love technology and challenges. It isn’t just bytes, bits and pixels. It’s a real, sensory human experience. We call it User Experience Innovation and together we empower visionaries to offer meaningful products and services.

Let us enjoy some wine together and discuss the meaning of User Experience Innovation

Is Virtual Reality the Next Big Thing?

IFriday_Image_Blog_E03

Is Virtual Reality more than just films and gamings, a realistic long-term concept?

Last year the owners of Facebook invested in Oculus VR and their Oculus Rift technology. This means that the likelihood of virtual reality first appearing as a realistic concept in these forms is much higher than for TV and film. This will ultimately change the way that virtual reality is used and how it is created for use by the general public.

Let's try it out! We would like to built a Google Cardboard VR Prototype with Unity. Unity is currently one of the most popular choices when it comes to building virtual reality applications.

We'll bring the Cardboards, you bring some time and joy of experimenting and prototyping.

We start at 2pm on May 20th. fa Members just pop in. Feel free to join!
