Read Talia's words on social design in the latest Hiatus book


Talia´s first essay on design was recently published by online and print collective Hiatus Book and Others, next to written thoughts from the likes of Karim Rashid, Oscar Diaz and Matali Crasset amongst others.

In their own words, Hiatus is a non-profit publishing project that Gathers together opinions from some of the current world´s top designers and their relationship with society, economy and nature.

Super chuffed to have been selected to submit an essay and have it welcomed and approved, the studio thanks the peeps behind the hard work at Hiatus - Sanserif Creatius - for the encouragement and inclusion in they upcoming fourth edition of the printed book.



Blog vs Journal


We´ve spent since the summer away from writing even the teeniest of paragraphs and reduced our social media to 140-character private-person tweets and letting images tell our stories on our private-person instagram.

As of the beginning of this November month we´ve decided to kick our taliaYstudio Facebook page and keep it alive only to invite people to our events - like last week´s Jellyseries product launch at the MAKshop in Vienna, or our upcoming Christmas Glühwine courtyard party (tba).

But why? Because we´re a moody broody girls´ studio who like to work hard and play hard - we did both this summer and autumn and personally Talia could not be bothered to spread the digital word about it as a private person AND a professional.

However, we´re constantly evaluating the studio´s work and direction, and have decided to sort out our digital studio persona once and for all. So add our studio journal (we also kicked the "blog"-title) to your RSS feed to be up-to-date on our latest and greatest studio shenanigans, ramblings, expeditions and outright nose-picking, hair-ripping undetailed deadline survival anecdotes as told by Talia - or subscribe to our newsletter for something a little less often and a little more formal.

Talia Radford hosts an ideation workshop during Fast Company´s Innovation by Design Conference

Thanks to Noah Robinschon, executive editor of Fast Company, for tweeting this! During yesterday´s Fast Company conference, Talia was invited to host one of the tables during lunch for selected guests. Obviously she got the post-it notes out and started an ideation session! For us, it´s all about knowledge transfer and a mutual interest in sharing creative processes and food-for-thought.

If you´re interested in one of our ideation sessions to help you bring your projects forward, get in touch!




Innovation by Design Conference and Awards

After a full two days of Fast Company´s workshops, lectures and podium discussions, last night we celebrated the Innovation by Design Awards. 

Even though our KissCam did not win in it´s Experimental Category, we´re super happy for the guys from MIT´s Tangible Media Groups InForm project for a well-deserved win, and super inspired to have spent the whole evening together excited about each other´s projects and generally interacting with some of the most creative minds in the industry.

Thanks so much to Fast Company for their incredible efforts to set-up a tip-top conference. I´m definately going to put it on my calendar for next year, and I urge you to do the same.

Two lovely and unforgettable details about last night: finding out that John Maeda was part of the Jury for our category; and finally reuniting and celebrating with former taliaYstudio team member Kickie Chudikova, who worked on the KissCam project before moving to her dream city of NYC. #almostthemost #doubletrouble fever was all around. <3



Kisscam shortlisted for Fast Company´s Innovation by Design Award 2015

We´re super stoked that our KissCam is a finalist in the prestigious Experimental Category of this year´s Innovation By Design Awards, shortlisted among the likes of Google X, MIT´s Tangible Media Group, BeAnotherLab and SeymourPowell!

We´re so excited, that Talia be travelling out to NYC in October to attend the workshops, lectures and podium discussions set up as a conference around the awards ceremony by Fast Company. We´re also looking forward to the no doubt delicious food and colourful drinks on offer, but mostly for the surely hyper-talented crowd attending, and of course a few days of New York culture and playing tourist on the High Line.

See you there!
