Viewpoint Design Magazine No.42Imagine a future where the culture around consumption had evolved so far that responsibly manufactured products were the norm rather than the exception – a future of guilt-free living.
In Viewpoint #42, the Guilt-Free edition, we explore how that future could become reality. A groundswell of popular horror at the ravaging of the planet, both in environmental and human terms, has become a potent force. We don’t want to sacrifice our oceans for a new drinking bottle every day or a microbeaded facial scrub – nor do we want to find ourselves eating our own rubbish when that plastic finds its way back into the food chain. We don’t want a throwaway £10 dress if it was made using modern-day slavery.
Viewpoint Design Magazine No.41If you were to ask the design imperative of the moment, the answer would be ‘colour’; but a very close second would come touch and handle! Wherever we look, we see tweed, slub, granular, crêpe, 3D, sculpted, blister, cloqué, raised surfaces… This is not just because of design aesthetics but also our growing need for ‘humancentric’ behavior.
With Artificial Intelligence (AI) on the rise, consumers are responding in two ways: some embrace it as a way to create time, boost productivity and even manage mood; other reject it preferring the fundamentally human characteristics of community, embracing the down-to-earth, the analogue and each other. We are busy right now considering what it means to be human – how we live in our own skin and celebrate our differences.
Viewpoint Design Magazine No.40
If you thought urban life was already stressful, crowded and unremitting, then get ready for even more complex city futures. Fifty years ago, less than a third of the world’s population lived in cities: in fifty years time, that figure will have more than doubled to 70 percent as changing agricultural patterns force rural dwellers into urban migration.
The challenges and issues facing governments and urban planners are exponential – future energy and food sources; environmental and health systems; sustainability issues; transport mechanics for people, goods and data; housing and renewable building materials; a new welfare capitalism; and complete connectivity… to name a few!
Viewpoint Design Magazine No.39
In Viewpoint #37 we explored Rebellion and the current thirst for dissent. In Viewpoint #38 we looked at the grassroots power that comes when people Think Small. Morality, Viewpoint #39’s Big Idea, ties in with both. The subversion of the bland, over-curated status quo is important, and the ‘small revolution’ is gaining traction – but an underlying morality needs to be the foundation of both, and principles are an issue that cannot be ignored.
Viewpoint Design Magazine No.38Think Small
Political commentators, designers, and thinkers are heralding a future in which globalization is reversed, shifting the focus from global to local; and power of the few to the power of the people. From the increasing number of people choosing to set up their own small business rather than work for a giant corporation, to the burgeoning numbers of households committing to a more self-sufficient way of living, this is the up-rising of small against big. Issue 38 of Viewpoint Design explores the rise of the ‘Small Revolution’.
Viewpoint Design Magazine No.37‘Rebellion’
We are living in a state of saturation – we have too much stuff, we are excessively informed and are brought up to conform. Even our exposure to ‘good’ design has landed us in an aesthetic landscape that is diluted and distinctly grey. However, it’s now time to challenge the status quo, to celebrate ‘realness’ and ‘difference’ and indeed having an opinion. Expect to see the rise of disruptor brands that are not afraid to challenge or conform and how good taste is being replaced with a rebellious anarchic mood.
Rebellion: the key messages
Be bold and subversive: people are thirsty for honesty and clear opinion
Authenticity is not just about pulling out a brand’s narrative and heritage – an authentic voice can still be subversive
Don’t over-curate; in an age where so much is easy and accessible, don’t deprive consumers of the joy of discovery, or of a rewarding challenge
Use social media to celebrate ‘warts and all’ rather than a perfected brand façade
Recognise and offer cultural and regional differences to sidestep global homogenised blandness
Viewpoint Design Magazine No.36
A recent report from the Global Footprint Network showed that we used up all of the 2015 quota of the planet’s natural resources by 13 August; six days earlier than in 2014. This alarming trend is set to continue for now – but all is not lost. Social movements around the world that start small but gather pace are supporting a wider shift from the ‘me’ to the ‘we’, a shift towards a society where there is a new sense of responsibility afoot; responsibility not just for ourselves, but also for our communities and for our planet.

The Language of Design
In 2013 IBM revealed that 90% of the data in the world had only been generated in the preceding two years. Despite that short timescale, the term big data quickly became a buzzword across the creative industries – and also became considered the business challenge of the 21st century. From weather reports to social media posts, digital pictures to purchasing figures, mapping urban movements to biological databases, we are tracking and collecting huge amounts of information. But what is big data – and is it all it’s cracked up to be?

THE TOOL FOR APPLYING LIFESTYLE TRENDS TO PRODUCT DESIGN
THE TOOL FOR TRANSLATING MARKETING SPEAK TO PHYSICAL PRODUCT
A NEW START
Welcome to our new look Viewpoint magazine, which Metropolitan Publishing, Amsterdam is relaunching in conjunction with FranklinTill Studio, London. It’s a happy marriage of two design oriented cities and two design-reputed companies that will enable us to firmly position the revamped Viewpoint as a bible for design insight and inspiration.
Originally, Viewpoint was born to take up branding and strategy questions. We still hold to that remit, but we have sought to broaden the appeal of the publication by expanding our design coverage not just through insightful written analysis of the most important directions impacting the sector, but also through a wealth of exciting, but highly pragmatic visual imagery.
Information everywhere, but how to cope with it, how to transform it into ideas and concepts. Show something new, individual and useful? Wind it up! Make it transparent all the layers so it becomes a sculpture of news.
