Playful animation of mistakes to avoid when creating your showreel

"I love showreels, and make sure to watch a few every morning with my first coffee. Noticing my own reel was insanely out–of–date got me thinking about reels in general. Here are a few of the obvious 2D and 3D showreel tropes I could think of (and am guilty of, too) mashed together into one almighty anti–showreel!"

PechaKucha 20x20: a speaking and sharing short form

"PechaKucha 20x20 is a simple presentation format where you show 20 images, each for 20 seconds. The images advance automatically and you talk along to the images. ...

PechaKucha Nights are informal and fun gatherings where creative people get together and share their ideas, works, thoughts, holiday snaps –– just about anything, really –– in the PechaKucha 20x20 format."

(Astrid Klein and Mark Dytham)

Note that it is possible to create a self–running presentation in MS Powerpoint through following these steps: http://office.microsoft.com/en–gb/powerpoint–help/set–the–timing–and–speed–of–a–transition–HA010377985.aspx and here: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YGVCKCn6jBc#t=2m10s

Integrating the process of design thinking into the classroom

"When you think of design thinking, think of innovative outcomes – like the iPod, or that perfect peeler that both cuts well and has an amazing grip, or the Aravind Eye Care system that allows for thousands of underresourced families in India to address cataract issues.

Pioneers of design thinking called it the process of 'a practical, creative resolution of problems or issues that looks for an improved future result' (Simon, 1969). Recently, educational researchers have been asking what happens when educators integrate the process of design thinking into the classroom. Their findings include numerous examples of enhanced student learning."

Communication design: another definitive definition

"Communication = creation of shared meaning, Design = a structured way of using creativity to accomplish a strategic result. So: Communication design is the practice of creating strategic meaning. And that meaning can be shared through words, images, and experiences.

When the goal is to get a new idea adopted, or to change people's behavior, or to get people emotionally invested, there's a whole bunch of shit involved in getting it right. You've got to think about the content of your communication, the styling of it, and the method of delivery. In other words, you want to make sure you've really thought about what you need to say, how best to say it, and what medium will be most effective. This is what communication designers do."
