Design by Committee
1 designer. 45 minutes. 500 clients. Join Espen as he conceives, designs and implements a responsive concept in less than 1 hour based entirely input from you – the audience. Together, we'll form the ultimate design committee and come up with a name, define an audience, and develop a typographic visual profile for an imaginary new company. Along the way you'll hopefully get a glimpse of the thought processes, conundrums, and general nonsense that plague the mind of a designer faced with an impossible deadline and 500 hard-to-please clients. They say a camel is a horse designed by a committee. But isn't it actually an incredibly apt transportation device perfectly adapted to specific needs? Decide for yourself as we push designing by committee to the limit in this collaborative ""Whose line is it anyway""-inspired design session.
