A podcast by design studio, Agency of None. Ryan McLeod and Lyall Bruce look at what design is.

    08 - What is Design?

    08 - What is Design?

    As the year draws to a close so too does our podcast theme ‘What is Design?’. We look back over the good and bad of the last year or so. Dundee Design Festival, Detroit, Graphic Design Festival Scotland and a bad client experience that is sadly all too common.

    We’ve had lots of great conversations with some amazing since we started the podcast but it feels like a natural endpoint for this theme. In the episode, we both draw our conclusions from the theme and hopefully answer the question.

    We also start to look forward to the next theme around design education in the broad sense of the general population and in training new designers looking to join the industry.

    “All Keiller no filler” Dundee Design Festival 2019 Roundup

    Over the past 6 months we’ve been working on producing Dundee Design Festival 2019. From 21 – 28 May it was held at the Keiller Centre in the heart of Dundee with more than 7,000 people visiting. On the final day, we sat down to reflect on festival, the process and what worked/didn’t work as we’d imagined. Head to dundeedesignfestival.com for more information on what happened at the festival.

    We went down to SWG3 in Glasgow to visit Warrior Studios and chat with James Gilchrist. James started Warrior studios with Beth Wilson after meeting at Edinburgh College of Art and holding themselves to a higher standard than that of their tutors.

    They then went on to create Graphic Design Festival Scotland as a response to problems they saw within the industry. They’re now moving into the 5th year of the festival that has grown in size and reputation over the years. We talk about the ups and downs the festival has brought as well as the design industry in Scotland as a whole.

    Bonus 01 - Push the button

    You may have noticed our intro and outro jingles are different for every episode. Along with Yann Seznec we created a concrete encased jingle creator button that is different everyday.

    In this bonus episode we chat about where the concept came from and about some of the technology behind the button. We have even included some of Lyall’s excellent impressions of the button noises right at the end.

    04 - Designing a liveable city in Helsinki

    At the start of January we decided to pack up the mics and head to Helsinki. Being a fellow UNESCO City of Design with lots of amazing public buildings and spaces it seemed like a great place to talk to people about how design can change cities.

    In this first episode of 2 we chat to Laura Aalto
    CEO of Helsinki Marketing and Piia Lehtinen Head of Sponsorship - Design Museum and chair of the board at Helsinki Design District.
