Requiem or renaissance? //
“Mass production along side conspicuous consumption is one of the most unfortunate legacies of the Industrial Revolution which has shaped the world we live in. Can we do anything about this?”

Process, Community, Business: the systems behind Open Design // “There is no single format for Open Design systems, and designers can develop them with design tools and tools from other fields, by working on the metadesign level”

Ezio Manzini

Open and distributed, a new world is emerging //
“Design experts must redefine both their “what” and their “how”: what are the artefacts to be designed and how the design process evolves if the systems in which they operate become open and distributed.”

How genuine is crowdsourced advertising? //
What are the limits between opening up your brand and protecting it? Do people really want conversations with brands and vice-versa? How far are advertisers – and consumers- willing to go?

What’s the impact of digital technologies, the potential of the internet and of social media on the creative professions? Although we’ve been immersed in them for what feels like a long time now, and a generation of digital natives is already starting to make its mark in the creative industries, the pace of change is absolutely furious. Every single day, somewhere, someone is discovering a completely new way of doing something – and telling us about it right away.
We believe that the best way to ride the wave is to share the ride – and that openness, transparency and collaboration are what will turn a technological capability into a social asset.
The Open Design / Shared Creativity Conference (ODSC) is a space where we meet up once a year to reflect and debate on the potential of the brave new world that we’re all creating together, to explore the opportunities and the challenges it brings, and share ideas and experiences.
Join us on June 30th and July 1st 2014 for a new edition of the conference. We’re already working hard to make ODSC14 more interactive and collaborative than ever, and we look forward to hearing from you. Tell us what you’d like to see or who you’d love to hear from, drop us a line if you’re doing something we should know about, and share any suggestions about how best to engage with each other during the event.
See you soon,

ODSC approach to Open Design
What is open design?
Open design promotes the application of principles that arose from the free software and open-code movement. It is based on the idea that creativity, and society in general, benefit from open communication channels and from the free transmission of information. This is why open design seeks to share the processes of creation, distribution and production of objects, ideas or systems, so that others may use them to adapt, reformulate, produce or distribute those designs or content according to their needs.
Why shared creativity?
The culture of open design is very quickly leading to a change in paradigm in the creative industries, enabling a collaborative economy of vast potential both for designers and creators and for users and consumers. It is very much an effervescent area that is generating new business models, innovative creative processes and participative consumer practices.
What does the future hold for the culture of open design?
This new paradigm brings with it the promise of making a positive and sustainable social impact, the creation of new exchange models, delocalisation and relocalisation of production and the renewal of consumer processes.
Arising from these alternative approaches are projects such as Creative Commons licences, co-creation processes, products with global distribution but produced locally and financed collectively, instances of collaborative consumption that rescue from the past certain economic processes such as bartering or loaning, on the basis of real communities united by the virtual nature of the social networks.
Key concepts
These multiple channels of innovation and renovation give rise to concerns and queries:
Can open design be financially profitable?
Are the new open and delocalised production methods truly sustainable?
Can collaborative consumption generate a dynamic economy?
What is the user’s role in an open design process?
What is the impact of these new design formulas on the nature of professional practice?
The ODSC conference offered a privileged space in which such concepts were tackled, through:
– A global and multidisciplinary approach in order to understand the reach of this phenomenon in its entirety and to favour the transfer of models and systems.
– The dissemination of alternative and profitable forms of creation, production, mediation, distribution and consumption favoured by the resurgence of the philosophy of exchange, free culture and the effervescence of digital technology and the social networks.
– The analysis of real scenarios of collaborative economy in the design environment.
