[Terry Levin] Stuck away at the far end of Africa, Design Indaba provides some much-needed perspective on our craft. Nothing replenishes a jaded inspiration better than an annual shot of pure cultural energy from New York's design elite.
[Terry Levin] The human UI (or the interface where the human body meets machine) made quite a few appearances on the first day of the 2013 Design Indaba Conference which took place at the Cape Town International Convention Centre (CTICC). [video]
[Terry Levin] With information and media channels currently at critical mass, clarifying the state of design today has become more important than ever. Many of Design Indaba day-one speakers demonstrated how design thinking is showing the ways for business and even governments to balance traditional best practices with new uncharted technological territories.
[Terry Levin] Colloquially, the word hyper is often used to convey over-the-top or excessive behaviour - as in "those blue Smarties made my child/dog/girlfriend really hyper". Additionally, over the last three or four decades, it has also come to mean linked. For the purposes of trend prediction, I will go out on a limb and predict that, from 2013, hyper will replace mega, uber and even inter as an urban prefix of choice.
