ConferencesThe things I wish I knew BEFORE starting a data design studio
After running a firm operating at the intersection of design, technology and data for more than 10 years, Gabriele takes stock of all the hard-learned truths, disproven myths, dangerous habits, and healthy discomforts encountered while making contrasting approaches work together. Drawing from Accurat’s experience on more than 500 projects combining art and science, the talk tries to frame a pragmatic perspective to answer the questions we all keep asking ourselves: Are interdisciplinary teams worth the effort? How to find your “secret sauce”? How —and why— does a team grow? What’s the endgame?
