Peloton, Hydrow, and Designing the Multi-Faceted Connected Fitness Experience

With the pandemic keeping most gyms closed, the connected fitness industry is booming. Peloton alone reported a 66% increase in sales through the spring. On this episode, we’re talking about the big moves in connected fitness equipment and digital experiences, and how they’re designed. Think Peloton for biking and running, Mirror for cardio, Tonal for weight training, Hydrow for rowing, and many more. These are internet-connected devices you have at home that allow you to work out with a digital and community experience on screen. As our guest co-host, David Knies shared, connected fitness companies need to get three things right: the hardware, the software, and the content, all while delivering a unified, best-in-class experience. David is the Chief Growth Officer at Essential Design, the design firm behind Hydrow, the live outdoor reality rowing machine. We interview Hydrow Founder and CEO, Bruce Smith, to dig into the design process behind his amazing rowing platform. Plus we share our weekly dose of good design.For links to resources we discuss on this episode, visit our show page:Peloton, Hydrow, and Designing the Multi-Faceted Connected Fitness Experience

The Fabric of the City. Designing Parks & Open Spaces that are Flexible and Equitable

Many of us are putting on our masks and heading to public parks to get some sun and fresh air — on this episode; we explore how landscape architects create these outdoor spaces and experiences. Parks and open spaces are always a joy to have in our lives. Particularly now, during the pandemic, outdoor public space feels essential to living our lives to the most of our ability while also keeping our distance to help stop the spread of the virus. We welcome two landscape architects who are experts at developing dynamic, flexible, and equitable spaces: Cheri Ruane is Vice President and Landscape Architecture Practice Leader at Weston & Sampson; and Chris Reed is the Founding Director of Stoss. We discuss the unique moment in Boston where three major parks are being imagined or reimagined at the same time — in Cheri’s words: it’s an opportunity to impact the fabric of the city. It may prove to be a model for improving the urban experience for all residents in cities across the country. Plus, we have our weekly dose of good design.For links to resources we discuss on this episode, visit our show page:The Fabric of the City.

An Employee-Centered Design Approach for the Next Evolution of the Office

COVID-19 changed the game for remote work, with large companies like Twitter and Shopify announcing they’re now fully remote. The CEO of Shopify even boldly proclaimed that “Office centricity is over.” Some experts estimate that 25-30% of the workforce will be working from home by the end of 2021 That’s great and all, but Zoom can’t fully replace working and collaborating in person in a shared space. As one of our guests explains: humans have dimension. So how do we design for a return to the office even as there’s a resurgence of COVID-19? What’s the next evolution of the office environment? We discuss with two experts: Leila Mitchell is an architect, graphic designer, and marketing strategist; she’s the Founder and Creative Director of LLM Design. And Kelliann McCabe is the Chief People Officer at Imprivata, a healthcare information technology company that enables trust across the system. While many firms are thinking about the physical augmentations that lead to a return ...

Telemedicine & COVID-19, Technology, Design, and Robots

Since the dawn of telecommunications technology, people have been figuring out ways to use it in healthcare. Of course, now that high-speed internet access is expanding and we can seamlessly video conference, the possibilities for connecting with healthcare remotely are really interesting. Plus, with COVID-19 still impacting so many and stressing our healthcare system, telemedicine could be how many of us receive care in the weeks, months, and years ahead. Why would you ever want to sit in a doctor’s office waiting room right now, when you could simply hop on a website, do a zoom call, or even text your doctor instead. Telehealth can take limited medical resources, namely doctors and specialists, and expand their reach and capacity — it can increase accessibility to medical advice and care to many people regardless of geographic proximity. We discuss design and telemedicine and its impact, with George White, Chief Innovation Officer at Cantina. We interview Ava Robotics CEO, Youss...

How Do You Design a Community? Start with the Why or the Who

We’re all able to connect through our phones and social media, but humans crave coming together, and yet participation in the classic religious and civic communities has declined over decades. COVID-19 has certainly complicated our ability to gather in person. Community is so important to us at the Design Museum, and like anything, you can be intentional about designing creating, maintaining, and growing community. It’s more than simply bringing people together and watching the magic happen, even though that’s definitely part of it! In this episode we talk to two community experts. Sara Sigel is a product and community builder who advises and invests in profit-from purpose companies — she’s an Advisor and Investor at Rev Boston. And Sascha Mombartz is a multidisciplinary design director, and the Founder of The Office for Visual Affairs. Sascha and his 2 other community-loving friends created the Community Canvas, which is a framework that will help you build a community. Plus w...

How Do You Design a Community? Start with the Why or the Who

Always. Be. Curious. Design Thinking and Sales Unite for Extraordinary Results

Sales and design thinking in the same sentence? It’s a new way of selling that builds off of the design process: empathy, discovering insights, and genuinely building relationships with customers. Ashley Welch, Co-Founder of Somersault Innovation and Author of Nakes Sales, joins us to discuss her Sell by Design methodology. She’s teaching sales professionals the tools of design thinking to drive customer centricity and revenue growth. We dive into her process and design-informed sales strategies. We’re also joined by Sachin Rai, a Senior Account Executive at Salesforce, who utilized Ashley’s training and advice to transform how he sells. Before selling to a new customer, Greyhound, Sachin took an 8-hour bus ride to learn about his potential customer and the pain-points in their service. Armed with surprising insights from his own first-hand experience, he was able to close a multi-million dollar deal. Sachin tells his story and the impact on his work. Plus, our weekly dose of go...

Infusing Equity in K-12 Curriculum Design, In the Classroom & at Home

Every teacher is a curriculum designer, creating experiences for people to understand and learn. In this episode we explore curriculum design with an important lens: equity. Successful curriculum connects with kids of different backgrounds and learning styles, and contains content beyond a white-centric history and approach. We discuss with Design Museum Everywhere’s very own Director of Learning and Interpretation, Diana Navarrete-Rackauckas, and Dr. Aaliyah Samuel, Executive Vice President of Government Affairs and Partnerships at NWEA. The conversation also explores strategies for parents who were transformed into teachers almost overnight because of COVID-19. It’s all connected because our kids are growing up and learning in the context of a global pandemic — their learning experience has dramatically changed — and during a growing, global protest movement against police brutality against Black Americans. Our guests provide insights on how we can meet this unique moment for our kids and our communities. Plus we have our weekly dose of good design.For links to resources we discuss on this episode, visit our show page:Infusing Equity in K-12 Curriculum Design, In the Classroom & at Home

Regenerating Earth’s Living Systems by Design

Design and the ecological systems that support life (including human life) are intimately connected. Typical to design and make something we’re removing resources from ecological systems and transforming those resources into something: a product, a building, an article of clothing, etc. In this episode we explore that relationship, including how design can help protect, learn from, and regenerate those systems. We talk with Lana Sutherland, Co-Founder and CEO of TEALEAVES about sustainability and biomimicry, the focus of TEALEAVES’ latest documentary, Garden of Secrets. The film positions botanical gardens as “idea banks” for future designs based on nature. And we speak with Dawn Danby, Co-Founder and Principal of SPHERICAL about her work on strategies for actually regenerating Earth’s living systems. Plus our weekly dose of good design.For links to resources we discuss on this episode, visit our show page:Regenerating Earth’s Living Systems by Design

Regenerating Earth’s Living Systems by Design

From Human-Centered Design to Relationship-Centered Design

Many of us are aware of human-centered design, which is all about placing real people at the center of our design work, so that we’re always designing with empathy and thoughtfulness. But what if we take it a step further and design with relationships in mind, so that we’re strengthening the bond between people, or between people and organizations, and build real loyalty? This is particularly interesting when we think about financial organizations and their customers, many of whom are adversely affected by the current financial crisis. So instead of blindly selling services and products, these organizations can focus on where people are in every moment of their journey to develop a life-long and trusting relationship. You can imagine this has business impact as well as social impact for the customer, as the fates of both the company and the customer are intertwined. We discuss with Mike Kirkpatrick, SVP of Client Experience & Strategy at Mad*Pow and Russ Wilson, Chief Experience O...

Fix Room 16! Designing Healthcare Facilities to be More Resilient & Equitable

As cases of COVID-19 spike, hospitals are simply running out of space and beds for people who need them. This is one of the main reasons we’re quarantined, not just to keep ourselves safe from the virus but also to “flatten the curve,” and help our hospitals keep up with a growing number of cases. On this episode we talk about how hospitals are designing solutions for surge capacity and what lessons there are for the future of hospital architecture. Those lessons could be very important as we may see new spikes in COVID-19 and as we must adapt facilities to be equitable for all patients, healthcare workers, and staff. We’re joined by Dr. Diana Anderson, a doctor architect, or Dochitect, currently a geriatric medicine fellow at the University of California, San Francisco; and Dr. Esther Choo, she’s an emergency medicine physician and health services researcher based in Portland, Oregon at Oregon Health & Science University, and she’s the chief medical advisor for a startup call...
