1. Anette Talks : Designing together for the 21st Century

    Kurshumli An, Old Bazaar, Skopje, Macedonia 4. October 2013

    What happens when designers shift their focus from satisfying consumer desires, to facilitating new social possibilities? Anette was invited by press to exit project space to give a talk at Skopje Design Week (1-6 oct. 2013). The talk took a closer look at two frameworks that champion transformative approaches to design: Metadesign – the design of design, and Socially Responsive Design – that shifts from designing for people to designing with people. Through the manifesto: Designing together for the 21st Century  we explored some projects and practices that are responding to the challenges and opportunities of the 21st century. The presentation was supported by Norsk Form and Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.


  2. Anette Talks Inspirations : Design for Behaviour Change

    Designers are in the business of designing for behaviour change. Les Robinson’s article in The Guardian: how the science of behaviour change can help with sustainability’  discusses the role of design in enabling sustainable futures and says: “one of the biggest changes to the practice of social change in recent years has been the entry of design professionals into the field. They bring a system of thinking based on immersive research, wide ranging inspiration, prototyping, piloting and redesign” (Robinson, 2011). As part of a multi-disciplinary effort it is good to read the acknowledgement on how design can contribute to important change.

    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.
