Chris Rudd interviewed on Scratching the Surface

ID professor in conversation with Jarrett Fuller

ID Clinical Professor of Community-Driven Design Chris Rudd talks to designer and Scratching the Surface podcast host Jarrett Fuller about how he came to design, teaching at ID, and design's relationship to business.



He also considers how co-design can be manipulative—and what design needs most now:

I used to think we could just reconfigure the tools and then create drastically different outcomes. As I continued to practice I realized that was no longer true, that the tools, the methods, will always bring us to a particular point.

And so design as a field needs new tools.
