Getting Away With Shit

Like many designers, Timothy Goodman is held down by rules and parameters that constantly stifle him. So how does he get his own sensibilities into his work? A couple of years ago, he decided to redirect his design career and push himself into new, scary, and unexpected territory through drawing, writing, and personal projects on the internet. He rather approach graphic design as a practice, not as a profession. Join Timothy has he reveals his way of getting away with shit.

Knowledge Transfer + Learning Communities that Work

How many times have you worked on new a web app or platform aimed at "getting users to work more collaboratively, share in-progress efforts and support each other in social learning?" As organizations struggle to support virtual workers and asynchronous work environments, the need to harness tacit, institutional knowledge continues to scale exponentially. Unfortunately disparate bespoke tools lack integration and expensive enterprise options aren't very accommodating. And in the end, neither address how and why authentic, successful  knowledge transfer occurs in the first place.

Make Your Own Rules

Creative play is essentially a mindset where you allow yourself to experiment, fail, take risks, and make discoveries. I will speak about the value of  play and as a tool for creativity and innovation. Play was crucial to my own development as a designer, and I will share how it influenced my career path and how its a part of the process I do today. We all know the best games have a strict set of rules, and I think the same goes for creative work. I think rules and limitations helps creativity thrive. It’s difficult to do something great when the possibilities are endless.
