Each year, the Design Division at California College of the Arts hosts a design lecture series featuring leading designers and topics on the state of design.
Kicking off the series this year was August de los Reyes. What an amazing designer. He did a fantastic talk on his career journey, how accessibility is related to universal design & inclusive design, the inspiration of games and closed with proposing 5 new pillars of design for the future. Along the way we learned about the Windows keyboard key, bedding, remotes, powers of 10 and yes, bendable straws.
Here are sketchnotes from the talk.
