Elegant Cutlery

Today, all the BBC‘s new media designers who could make it got together for a half day to see presentations by Colin Burns of Ideo, Mark Curtis of Fjord and Irene McAra-McWilliam, new head of the Royal College of Art’s Computer-Related Design course.

I’ll try and post up notes and observations from what were three incredibly thought-provoking talks, which left our little community buzzing.

In the mean time… a quote from Colin Burns, on the myth of ‘convergence’ and the implications for the design of digital appliances, phones and PDAs:


“The Swiss Army Knife never put makers of elegant, expensive cutlery out of business…”

  1. I checked on the IDEO, Fjord and CRD sites and there is no mention of the fact that these people had the honour of meeting with Matt Jones. What is wrong with them? Don’t they know they have been blessed?
