Event Details



You are cordially invited to the next Thornhill Design Laboratory Salon, to be held

Wednesday, August 29, 2012.  We will start at 10:00 AM and run to 11:00 AM.


Seating Is Limited.  Advance Registration – Pay What You Can

At: http://tdlsalon5.eventbrite.com


Our discussion last week detailed the full inventory of the Thornhill Design Lab.  We also went into a description of related items on our calendar.  There were questions about many of the listed elements, but the one that raised the most curiosity was (of course) the one that carried the least information.  That was (5) Client Services - Expensive! Research, Planning, Development.


When I open the doors to client services, my preference will be to start with extensions on existing programs.  What will make option (5) so expensive is the research and planning required before developing anything.  I have elected to answer the questions with two timely examples, taking advantage of existing research.


And to make sure that you will follow along each week, I will make it really simple.  I have found in business design that the first step is a rudimentary inventory and then an all-hands-on-board master calendar.  From there, I could build the skeleton of a timeline, production schedules or even a project/company biography.


These basics are current for:

            Example a. The Thornhill Design Laboratory and

            Example b. The Digital Television Report (DTR). 


Again, following the premise of simplicity, we will use the existing inventories (lists) to develop scripts and then a slide show for each.


As often stated, “The purpose of the weekly event is to give details about The Thornhill Design Laboratory, our continuous improvement and specific projects.”  This proves it!


Join me each Wednesday morning (we start at 10:00 AM) in the Fireside Room at the Fremont Abbey Arts Center, 4272 Fremont Avenue in Seattle, Washington 98103.  Check: http://fremontabbey.org.  The salon will always be a source for everything at the Design Lab and up-to-the-minute news in the project design world. 


There is no mandatory fee to attend, but donations will be accepted when you register.  Pay what you choose.  Advance registration is requested.  Register today at: http://tdlsalon5.eventbrite.com.  Caution: The group is limited to twelve, so that each person can fully participate in the discussion.


Our book this week:  To continue with simple, yet beautiful, let me suggest “Ambos Nogales, Intimate Portraits Of The U.S. Mexico Border.”  This is the third book coming from the team of photographer Maeve Hickey and writer Lawrence Taylor.  The School of American Research Press (www.sarweb.org) is the publisher.  We would certainly like to get your opinion.  Join us – or email it in!


Almost every company, organization, school, artist and entrepreneur will think this year about their basic technology and equipment for access.  This is our Digital Landscape.  With many changes afoot, think about “Program Integration” for existing and new devices. Have you started planning for the change?


Hospitality is part of the package.  Coffee and bottled water will be served.  You are welcome to bring pastries or treats for the group to enjoy.  If your company has bigger concepts for partnering with the Lab – let me know!


The busiest part of The Thornhill Design Lab is the Thornhill Digital Storytelling initiative.
