*This programme was finished.
In this 3.5 hour interactive lecture & creative workshop participants will be introduced to the many forms of prototyping methods used in the design industry to drive towards innovative solutions and products. Participants will get a taste for how designers use simple and rapid making techniques to bring concepts to life with hands-on, guided creative exercises. This program is open to people from all fields who want to see collaborative making in action and/or those hoping to expand their creative toolkits to have greater impact through tangible prototyping.
The talks and hands on exercises are drawn from Gaetano’s extensive prototyping experience as a Design Engineer, currently leading design within Google’s Advanced Concepts team. Themes will bridge making techniques that can be applied to digital services and physical devices alike.

Designer, Senior Device Interaction Designer at Google
Gaetano Ling is a multidisciplinary product designer who has, according to himself, somehow managed to make a career out of curiosity and tinkering. With formal experience in design for manufacture and mechanical engineering, he also obtained a double MA & MSc degree in Innovation Design Engineering from the Royal College of Art and Imperial College in 2011. Since then, he's applied a range of end-to-end making skills, from rapid digital/physical prototyping to dfm, towards several products you might have seen out in the world. Currently he is a Senior Device Interaction Designer at Google, after humanizing technology as a product designer at IDEO in Palo Alto, California.
