PDP Gala 2012

Today I really felt I'm living in the current World Design Capital: In the morning and up to lunch I was at Finpro listening to presentations on service design by people from IDEO in London, plus heard four Finnish company cases related to that. Then in the afternoon I headed out to Otaniemi to enjoy the creative madness that is the annual Product Development Project exhibition. As usual, the students had put in long hours and good effort, so the demo effects that some prototype's suffered were easily forgiven. Too bad we consultant types don't get to involve students in our projects.

One thing I was a bit surprised about was that some teams weren't really interested in presenting, but were rather just hanging around and chatting with each other. For example LINK is hiring now, and I might have been a good target for some networking, even though I don't make the hiring decisions. Perhaps they were just all tired from finishing the proto's the night before, and enjoying the end of 8-9 months of hard work. I'd say some of them even earned it .

If you see a bike with this much hipster cred, you can't shoot it without some hipster filter.

Before the avian-flu scare a few years back they always had live chicks in the Winter Garden at Easter. Not anymore.

Once again the Oly 45mm showing its strengths. This time in the Helsinki Winter Garden greenhouse. No idea what kind of plant that is, except it isn't meat-eating; Those were behind glass.
