Additional Information (Publicly available):

TYPO Berlin 2016 “Beyond Design” is dedicated to the mental tool called designing. It’s not about the well-worn narrative forms of graphic design that are readily available on every street corner. And it’s not about flash in the pan sensations. It’s about a strategy of responsible design. It’s about the design of the future. And about thinking about thought. It’s about what our brain was made for – networking, language, learning, interaction.
