As part of the “Crossing Boundaries Lecture Series”, Virginia Commonwealth University in Qatar (VCUQatar) will host a lecture by renowned interaction designer Crispin Jones tomorrow (February 15) at 6pm. The lecture, entitled “Complicated Pleasures”, is open to the public. Jones will talk about the projects that he has worked on over the past decade, focusing on how he moved from making one-off experimental works into producing his own product ranges. The London-based designer works at the intersection of art and design, broadly critical design. His work uses the language and tools of product design to articulate a critical perspective. After graduating from the Royal College of Art in 2000 with an MA in Computer Related Design, the designer worked for a number of top companies including Casio Research, Philips Design and IDEO London. Jones has also worked independently and in partnership (as one half of Robson & Jones) on interactive projects for a number of high-profile clients including the BBC, Tate Modern, the V&A and the Science Museum. VCUQatar’s Crossing Boundaries Lecture Series reflects the cross-disciplinary nature of the featured speakers who are representatives of excellence in design thinking. Gulf Times
