Cofounder & Chief Creative Officer, argodesign
“I want to offer perspective on design that’s not all about the visible artifact. It’s moving into behavior, the interaction between a human and a machine when the machine isn’t immediately evident, but is instead more of an entity like HAL. And that design… we’ve barely scratched the surface of what that means.”
