Lost In, Like, “Translation”


By Alissa Walker Comment


Occasionally we like to point out how funny design articles are when they’re written by someone who doesn’t understand design. But even more occasionally, we’re the ones who get interviewed for such articles. And this time, it’s not quite so funny. Our friends at the Aspen Times compiled this choice comment from our chat yesterday:

“We’re trying to redefine, like, the definition of ‘design,'” said Alissa Walker of AIGA, the international design organization in charge of the summit.

Like, totally! To the max! And how exactly will we do this?

Over the next couple of days, using established steps known as the “design process,” teams of designers, educators, social reformers and others will convene in teams to consider challenges in three areas…

Ah, the mysterious “design process”–sounds, like, totally deep! We’re no Britney, but we’re “sure” that the Aspen community is “super psyched” to know that “design” is safe in the hands of, like, Valley Girls.
