Slow Design Down Under
Welcome to a bit slow! We are a bunch of interdisciplinary designers located in the land of oz (down under) deciding to stimulate debate around the concept of ‘slow design’.
What is slow design? Well its a movement that started in the kitchen- have you heard of slow food? well now thats basically taking over other areas, such as design- thats where we come in.
Slow design is all about pulling back on the reins and taking time to do things well, do them responsibly and do them in a way that allows the designer, the artisan and the end user to derive pleasure from it.
Thats a very basic description and still maybe a bit vague- so to get a better idea of what it is have a look at the posts in various sections to see the practical application of slow design!
