Kelli Anderson’s Disruptive Wonder is a very interesting video. Her ideas of innovation and reinvention of the existing are far beyond the surface of the concept. I have never experienced disruptive wonder in my design experience, at least not in the sense of how she describes it. However, her video has inspired me to take a different approach to my design thinking. It has caused me to ask questions like, “why can’t paper have audio quality”, “why can’t I create and distribute my own version of the New York Times“, “why does design have to be so careful”, and “why can’t I give new meaning and a new vision to ordinary everyday objects”? According to Anderson, that’s exactly what designers are suppose to do, reinvent the norm and how it is perceived. For the most part, I try to be innovative and fresh with my ideas and design thinking. Watching Disruptive Wonder has inadvertently encouraged me to create and experience my own disruptive wonder.
As always, thanks for reading!
All the best,
