This talk by Timothy Prestero is right on the money. He makes great points about designing products for impact, and highlights some important lessons learned about what it takes to actually take something from design through to the point where you’re actually making a difference with what you’ve built. There are some great reminders in this talk on the importance of seeing a project all the way through and designing for real-world use, rather than accolades.

In this 30 minute video, Photographer and filmmaker Andrew Zuckerman shares some lessons from his time creating the Wisdom project, in which he interviewed “elders” around the world, including Chuck Close, Bill Withers, Jane Goodall, Frank Gehry, Massimo Vignelli, among many others. Zuckerman talks about the anxiety we feel as we start a new projects, how fear can help us get things done, and the importance of honesty and good, old-fashioned hard work (surprise, suprise). You can thank the99percent team for this one.
You just can’t emphasize #29 enough. :)
