1. Anette Workshops : playing with diversities for socially responsive design

    Kurshumli An, Old Bazaar, Skopje, Macedonia 5. October 2013

    How do you work as ‘socially responsive designer’? During Skopje Design Week, Anette gave a three-hour creative workshop where participants were introduced to a playful design process based on ‘bisociation’ (Koestler 1964, Jones and Lundebye, 2012) that has evolved from the on-going research into ‘metadesign’ tools. The set of tools provide an effective starting point for rapid prototyping of design seeds with the aim to create socially responsive design. Key themes that came up in this workshop tended to focus on: craftsmanship, gift economy, shared ownership, localism and storytelling. The workshop was supported by Norsk Form and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


  2. Anette Workshops Anette Research Talks What's up : Metadesign at the Design & Emotion conference

    Central St. Martins School of Art & Design, London 11-14. September 2012

    Anette and Hannah Jones are presenting a paper and a workshop at the 8th International Conference on Design & Emotion, this year hosted at Central St. Martins College of Arts and Design in London. The article presents the findings from the first phase of an SRVD project carried out in November 2011 with the MA Design students at Oslo National Academy of the Arts (KHiO). The project, entitled ‘Metadesigning Spaces of Engagement and Exchange’ set about ‘bisociating diversities’ within the community and co-designing ‘seeds’ to revitalize a multi-cultural shopping and cultural centre in Veitvet, Oslo.

    As a creative catalyser, driven by a strong interest in sustainability and futures. Anette builds on interdisciplinary approaches from design thinking, metadesign research, systemic coaching, education, facilitation and art to work co-creatively with her clients to catalyse inspiration and insight to support change. She has over 15 years experience as a design professional in industry, academia and the not-for-profit sector from France, Scandinavia and the UK.

    She started out in Paris, where she studied and later worked as a designer for the international automotive industry, developing concepts and textile products at Trèves for major OEMs. A turning point in her career came during her studies at MA Design Futures, Goldsmiths, University of London, as this offered her the opportunity to develop her outlook on sustainability, gain theoretical perspectives, assimilate design research methods as well as reflect deeply and critically about her social role as a designer.

    Anette worked with the Nowhere Foundation on the design education initiative ‘from Waste to Wisdom’ (2004-06), and was a researcher on the ‘Bench-marking Synergy Levels in Meta-design’ project (2006-08) at Goldsmiths where she was involved in devising tools, methods and collaborative processes for trans-disciplinary teams. She has co-developed SRVD (Socially Responsive Design) projects using metadesign at Oslo National Academy of the Arts and has published several research papers, articles and delivered workshops at international conferences.

    Currently she is a senior lecturer at Regent’s University London where she teaches sustainability, innovation and creative-thinking related courses. She continues to lecture frequently on MA Design Futures at Goldsmiths and is invited regularly to facilitate creative processes and workshops at Oslo National Academy of the Arts, Linneus University in Sweden and at other institutions in the UK and Scandinavia.

    Anette continues to practice as an artist and has developed and presented projects and exhibitions internationally since 1996. Her work explores the boundaries between perceptions, practices and social trends associated with material culture and what we value. She works collaboratively with the art collective Foreign Investment and writes occasionally on her blog called Senseness, where she reflects on the role of art, design and futures in the 21st century.
