Product Design A to Z

@ VOL 4 ON OCT 25, 2013

"Designing is the art of using forethought. If you make it up on the spot, that's not design, that's Jazz.'"

In Product Design A to Z from PechaKucha Night New Westminster Vol. 4, Lead Product Designer at lighting manufacturer, Fluxworks Illumination, Daniel Fortin walks us through the process of taking an idea, LED design in this case, through its myriad stages of development before it hits production and tells us why we need to pay closer attention to the products we surround ourselves. 

This was "PechaKucha of the Day" on Monday, May 16th, 2016.
