Idea Fair

Last updated: Sep 13, 2020 at 8:07pm

Overview

The idea fair is intended to provide you with additional project opportunities and introduce potential clients representing under-served groups.

There will be a number of parallel sessions at which clients identify projects and needs. We will divide your section so that all presentations will be covered by at least one person from your section (two persons per team). You will need to take notes so that you can report to your section in your first lab meeting. If you have a conflict, please just make sure that somebody else on your team is covering your session. You may use your team mail lists or slack workspace to contact team members.

Ideas from the idea fair may be combined with the list of ideas selected from your upcoming brainstorming deliverable. You may use ideas generated by your section and/or from the idea fair in the 3-ideas presentation. The HelmentHub (2.009 gallery) is an example of 2.009 project that arose from a client at an idea fair.

The idea fair is scheduled in the evening so that a number of potential customers and experts can attend to propose project opportunities.

Logistics

At the project idea fair you will meet clients with suggestions for potential projects. The fair will be held on Zoom and run from 7:00 PM to 8:00 PM. Please do not be late.

You are assigned to two sessions. Please remember that you will need to take notes so that you can report to your team during your first team meeting. It would be useful to record your notes in your slack site. As noted previously, if you have a conflict, please make sure that there is a team member covering your session.

Please don't look for the client to provide a solution or tightly specified design problem. In talking to clients you will probably identify new opportunities that they have not explicitly identified. Some of the potential clients may have specific design problems in mind, while others will discuss broader issues. Please remember that, as a designer, it is your responsibility to interpret information carefully so that you can develop the most need-appropriate and successful product possible. Specific implementation ideas provided by the client may—or may not—be sound.

The idea fair is over, but you can view the abstracts and presentation slides from the presenters.
