Kevin Lawler presents Clarity: Design Encounters at the Edge of the World

“Clarity” is a survey of the astonishing boundaries of design & technology. What is the polar opposite of minimalism? What does Picasso have in common with Jeff Bezos? Who’s right in the design war between Apple and Samsung?

OVERVIEW:

  • Design is everything you put on top.
  • Good design is good and bad design is bad.
    (not simple is good and complex is bad)
  • What is the Cloud?
    (hint, it’s not storable on your PC computer)
  •  Pablo Picasso was criticized for his line drawings.
    (too minimal)
  • Kevin Lawler loves Apple products… and so do a lot of Apple competitors… you can see it simply by looking at their designs.
  • The key to good design is “easy to use and well designed.”
