Reflection:

How can different design disciplines contribute to organic waste solutions?

According to Tatiana Pages a designer who worked on interdisciplinary design. The interdisciplinary design means looking at many types and disciplines at one time, and looking at the project beyond its category and using intersections. In our design, we looked at aesthetic, human behaviour, educations, environment etc. That requires people with different way to see the world. Which is why we are needing people from different disciplines. We all have different way of thinking as an individual, and by studying different course, it shaped out way of thinking even further. Designers are exist to make life solution. By when facing big problem like organic waste, we need to consider more. Like product designers are focus on functionality and visual communicators are focus on the visual approach to the audience. Each have different characteristics and advantage.

Why is it important to include designers in the management of organic waste? What contribution does design make to thinking about systems? to changing systems? to inventing systems?

Designers are important. Designer have understanding of design thinking, which not only work with designing visual works but also work with things like a system. Besides, designer have the sense of make visual attraction to the system. The system is involving with people and it’s interactive, visual language and product practicability became very important. Designer knows the best approaches of visual communication, and how to shape the product and procedure, due to the daily practice as a designer. Also, designer is irreplaceable, because visualisation is a big component of the system and nobody does better than a visual designer (generally includes different disciplines).
