24: Design as continuum with Naveen Bagalkot

Naveen, design is not a mere means to an end, but a means of inquiry and exploration of the nuances of human behaviour and experience. Naveen holds a Ph.D. in Interaction Design from IT-University of Copenhagen, Denmark, an M.Des in Industrial Design from IIT-Bombay, and a B.Arch from Vishveshwarya Technological University, India. Currently Naveen teaches at Shrishti School of Arts in Bangalore. His research is within the field of Human Computer Interaction (HCI) and User Experience Design.. Today we will try and understand his views on design and designing, in particular.

  2. What sort of process is "designing"? A linear? Cyclical? Forming a tree, either top down or bottom up approach?
  3. When do you stop designing?
  4. How do you set goals and milestones when you are considering it to be an ongoing process?
  5. The economist and political writer Thomas Sowell once wrote, There are no solutions, only trade-offs. How do you define trade-off? What are few parameters based on which you are willing to live with those few trade-offs in your solutions?
  6. Is this idea of "designing" scalable in this consumeristic market or should i say commoditised world?
  7. What are your thoughts about education in design? Is design a profession or is it a practice?
