When a friend once remarked "generalists will save the world, not specialists", Brendan realised that whilst he will never save the world, he is very much a generalist. But whilst his career has seen him go from making underground breakbeat albums, to web design and now physical objects, there has always been one consistent theme that runs through out all the work – the love and joy of making. In this session, Brendan will talk about some of his core beliefs when it comes to all kinds of design and how the process of making something is just as important as the final product.
Brendan Dawes is a MoMA exhibited artist, designer, author, maker, self confessed generalist and the founder of Beep Industries. Ever since his first experiences with the humble ZX81 back in the early eighties, Brendan has continued to explore the interplay of people, code, design and art through the products released through Beep Industries and on brendandawes.com, a personal space where he publishes random thoughts, toys and projects created from an eclectic mix of digital and analog objects. In 2009 he was listed among the top twenty web designers in the world by .Net magazine and was featured in the "Design Icon" series in Computer Arts.
