Week 7, Tuesday Class

So I have switched groups and joined another project with Ashleigh Dawson and Sophie Watts. The brief is stress in the city and the focus is workers taking a lunch break. First class back everyone is presenting their research conducted over the break. Either a designed experience or an individual that has experienced something based around wellbeing. Our group decided to focus on Arianna Huffington. Personally I have read both her books Thrive and The Sleep Revolution so I had quite a thorough understanding about who she is, her relationship with wellbeing and how she tries to promote a healthy work life balance, not only in her own life but in her office (as she is the founding director). I think people were really intrigued by all the research we presented - not only about Arianna but also design elements that she has either created or utilised in her life.
