Aga Szóstek: Umami Adaptation

ReDesign Travel + Life

We start the year with Aga Szóstek, PhD, a strategic designer guru who has worked at the forefront of combining design, technology, and business for the past two decades. She collaborated with brands such as Google, Philips, Canon, Samsung, EY, Santander, ING, Orange, and many more, bringing the experience-focused strategic approach to project teams and boardrooms. Her approach has inspired many organisations to refocus and bet on experiences as their market differentiator. She recently published "The Umami Strategy: Stand Out by Mixing Business with Experience Design” and hosts a creative leadership podcast. In this episode, we discuss strategy, experience design, positive adaptation, mystery and ideas for the emerging transformation economy in travel. This episode is a must for anyone currently redesigning their business strategy to meet the new market demands where expectation creation and delivery are at the core of their value proposition.Thank you so much for listening. Take a minute to leave a review for us!

S1.E10. Aga Szóstek & Werner Puchert. OUTRO: Stepping Into The World of Transformational Design.

Catching the Next Wave

In the world of transformational design, we create the narratives which define how we live our lives. The role of design is to enable the positive change to happen. To facilitate and to coach it. But ultimately the work needs to be done by the users. By each of us. The role of business and design is to responsibly accommodate us once we are ready to take the first steps. To leap. To become an artist. Important links Aga Szóstek @malka6 www.seed-cards.com www.uxplus.pl Medium writings Werner Puchert @weenerdawg Medium writings

S1.E1. Aga Szóstek & Werner Puchert. INTRO: What’s Next For Design?

Catching the Next Wave

We find ourselves in a world bogged down in technology. It needs to change, we believe this change is inevitable. In fact, It is already happening under our noses and Design will be in the thick of it. We kick off with our podcast wondering: what is next for Design? Is the Experience Economy already here? Or did the world take another turn? What is the meaning of positive psychology, searching for happiness and addressing deep human needs? Will this become a discussion point in the boardroom? Will it ever? Important links Aga Szóstek @malka6 www.seed-cards.com www.uxplus.pl Medium writings Werner Puchert @weenerdawg Medium writings
