    Episode 04: The not-so-simple act of future prediction

    Episode 04: The not-so-simple act of future prediction

    YELLO meets Los Angeles-based future-thinker, Tatiana Toutikian, to dive into the world of Speculative Design - sometimes called Critical Design.

    Tatiana is working right at the intersection of design, business, social science, and technology - helping businesses, the public sector, and nonprofits get a bird’s eye view on the whole system surrounding their service. In this episode, Tatiana will talk about the need for following societal and technological trends, and weak signals, and how her career so far has shaped her own experiences in the field. You can expect to hear about:

    - How you anticipate and plan for future products, services, and experiences
    - How this area of design help businesses not only grow but constantly rethink where they’re at
    - And what the purpose of doing speculative and critical design is, in the first place.

    Leading the conversation with Tatiana is Katja Forbes, Managing Director of our Australia and New Zealand studios, and board member at IxDA (that’s the Interaction Design Association if you don’t know). In fact, IxDA is where Tatiana and Katja first met.

    We hope you enjoy it!

    Episode 03: The business of sustainability

    Episode 03: The business of sustainability

    YELLO meets Johann Olav Koss. An Olympic gold medallist in speed skating and founder of the global non-profit organization, Right to Play. We took the opportunity to talk with him to better understand his passion for sustainability and leadership. Since founding Right To Play in 2000, the non-profit is now working with schools and community-based organizations globally, offering training and education through its innovative play-based learning methodology.

    What needs to happen to successfully build and grow sustainable organizations, like Right To Play? And what is expected of business leaders as they shape the organizations of the future? As Johann points out, working within the right time horizon helps.

    Leading the conversation with Johann is Guro Røberg, based out of our Oslo studio with sustainability at the forefront of her interests in design. We hope you enjoy!

    Episode 02: The mess we're in

    Episode 02: The mess we're in

    Mike Monteiro, author, designer, and co-founder of Mule Design, based in San Francisco, joins Guro Røberg from our Oslo studio to talk about how we can begin to think through the problems we're facing in the world right now.

    His message is clear: there’s work to be done.
    Lessons from our recent history serve up some useful teachings on how to design ethically (and unethically). We’ll examine some of those more closely, and critically. As a champion for design, education, leadership, working practices, and diversity – Mike believes we can build better societies for all if we just bother to learn from our mistakes and understand what it really means to design responsibly. These are topics covered in both his latest book ‘Ruined by Design’ …AND in this episode.

    Episode 01: How important is data privacy?

    Could privacy become only for the rich? Pernille Tranberg thinks so. Pernille is a journalist, advisor, and educator in data ethics, data privacy, and data democracy and is actively exploring what the role of data is today. Our Futures Lab Director, Lasse Underbjerg, went along to meet her.

    In the next 30 minutes, you’ll discover:
    - what data ethics and data privacy is
    - the different types of data and how they can be used for positive impact
    - how to anonymize data
    - how different companies and countries are dealing with data privacy
    - where data has been abused and where we should draw the line
    - what companies can do to process data more ethically
    - when human usage of data vs AI usage is acceptable
    - how you can design for data and how data can help us
    - real-life examples of how data is used responsibly
    - …and what the future of data privacy will look like
