"Everything has the potential to be incredible!" by Vitamins Design

  • Dec 4, 2013 · 6:00 PM

Vitamins is an award winning Design and Invention Studio based in London, founded by an inventor, a designer and a magician. This talk will focus on how working in a team of diverse skills and expertise can create unexpected, but deeply relevant innovation, in fields ranging from product design, digital design and architecture.

In this talk, Clara Gaggero and Adrian Westaway from Vitamins will talk about how the studio tackled three projects which completely transformed ordinary objects: a user manual, a blood pressure monitor and a calendar
They will describe the briefs given to them, and the explain design process they used to research and transform the ordinary into the extraordinary.

The studio was founded by Duncan Fitzsimons, Clara Gaggero and Adrian Westaway in 2007, and is built around their multidisciplinary backgrounds. By combining design, invention, engineering, magic and fashion they work with a diverse range of clients, delivering unexpected, elegant, deeply relevant solutions full of wonder.

    A great presentation that presented three projects in such a way that you couldn't help but want to use the things. Also great that they showed fun ways to get user input and feedback.
