Design as Podcast
The podcast GRID. reflects on the creative, psychological, and economic challenges in the design profession and makes experiences, mistakes, and figures transparent. It promotes a comprehensive understanding of design disciplines among each other and creates a place for interfaces, networking, and interstices. Like a grid, Grid shows a multitude of approaches and possibilities and supports young designers in orienting themselves, developing further, and positioning themselves.
Grid is as authentic as possible, naturally follows a content structure, offers variety, is up-to-date, allows opinions, is innovative, has social relevance, and offers an international perspective as far as possible. This is done in an entertaining way, but also offers expertise, tips, and insights into projects from professionals. Moderation and talks by and with Prof. Dr. Ralf Beuker and Prof. Dipl. Des. Rüdiger Quass von Deyen.
Post to the (younger) design self
The current episode is about the (secret) classic: the advice we would give ourselves if we met our younger selves. Each of us has certainly critically questioned things in life and wished he/she had decided differently from time to time. In this episode we are again supported with perspectives, opinions and statements from experts who have already finished their design studies a few years ago and share their experiences with us from their current perspective as brand manager, design professor, illustrator, and designer/project manager: How do I evaluate professional or even personal challenges, yesterday and today? How can I build and maintain sustainable relationships and networks that are not only important to me professionally, but also support me in my private life? What is and was important to us in life and how would we like to set our priorities today? But the point of giving advice to ones younger self is also to draw on experiences and insights from the past to help oneself better navigate the present and future.
