Paolo Cardini: Forget Multitasking, Try Monotasking
Paolo Cardini is a product designer who is currently an MFA Design Assistant Professor at Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar. A champion of reducing the amount of stimuli in our life, he discusses the benefits of why “monotasking” is important in this 2012 TEDGLOBAL talk. He explains “monotasking” as the act of focusing on one thing at a time and addresses whether multitasking helps or harms productivity. This is a must watch for business owners who have to frequently juggle lots of tasks at one time. He developed several products like a 3D-printed smartphone cover that can help people streamline and simplify their life.
Jinsop Lee: Design for all Five Senses
From the color scheme to table arrangement, you always have to make important decisions about the overall design and atmosphere of the event. Although it’s easy to mostly focus on visual design, Jinsop Lee believes that would be a mistake. Jinsop Lee is a industrial designer who believes that great design appeals to everyone’s five senses. He developed the theory of “five-sense design”, which can elevate people’s overall experience by appealing to their senses of smell, touch, sight, sound, and taste.
