design-for-the-futureEpisode #3 of The Garland Report features Scott Smith, managing partner of the design firm Changeist. In this interview, Scott tells us why foresight (futures studies, futurism, predictive intelligence, whatever you want to call it) may not work from a top-down, decisionmaker-centric focus, but is perfect for design projects.

Smith tells us about how the tangible nature of design takes foresight out of the realm of abstract ideas, and onto a world where we build valuable things that are ready for a variety of futures.

In short, don’t predict the future – design for the future.
