As part of our Level 1 lecture series (open to all students) called “Who Am I? Where Am I Going?” we’ve invited a number of industry professionals from all walks of product design, interaction design, and even art to speak about how they got into their industry, interesting projects they’ve worked on, and other topics that our students might find useful and inspiring to help them find a design subject specialty that they might want to do upon graduating from the course.

This week we welcomed visual and sound artist Daniel Jones of Jones and Bulley who spoke about his varied experiences in digital art, alongside some very enlightening diagrams highlighting the complex network of people who support his and James Bulley’s work.

Burble by Umbrellium

We also were delighted to have Dot Samsen and Ling Tan of interaction design firm Umbrellium discussing their work, which ranges from large-scale installations like the Burble to very playful installations like their piece at the Barbican’s Digital Revolution exhibition this past summer.
