Scintilla attends International Design for Business: Research Conference May 2015 – We recently attended the Research conference held in Melbourne run by AgIdeas. This is one of the best conferences we have attended with a great range of speakers and inspiring topics exploring the nexus between design and business. Over a 3 day period we attended a number of presentations from design practitioners and academics on topics including: redesigning the energy sector, design innovation, service design, socially responsible design, design for business, diversifying product offerings for Australian manufacturers, and one of our favourites, a great presentation by Francesca Zampollo who presented “Food design for business”. Francesca is a lecturer at Auckland University.

Designer speed dating at UTS April 2015 – Dorte recently participated in “designer speed dating” at the University of Technology Sydney where she spoke about Scintilla Design to first year industrial design students. The session involved a dozen professional practising designers in different areas of design speaking with first year students in small groups. The aim was to convey the variety of design experiences and possible career paths open to graduates of industrial design.
Educating the designers of tomorrow Feb 2015 – As part of Scintilla’s ongoing commitment to the development of design and designers within Australia, Ian has once again been asked by UTS to tutor and mentor final year industrial design students in the areas of design research, dissertation, conceptualisation and realisation. Ian says: “Having students work with practising designers enables us to impart our knowledge and share our real world experience.” Ian looks forward to working with the students over the coming year.
