XPLANE Hosts Open House for DWP 2014
XPLANE is a business design consultancy. The definition of what we do is a result of the evolution in the definition of the word, &ldq
For Design Week Portland, our goal was to showcase how the skills and behaviors we rely on for client work make up the landscape called, “design consulting.” By visualizing our process, outlining the behaviors (and super powers) of our project teams, and describing how each of these behaviors are used in designing solutions for our clients, our hope was that attendees would walk away with an understanding of what design consulting is, how XPLANE approaches it, and how behaviors, rather than job titles, contribute to overall success.
We first asked attendees to draw their super power and post it up on the wall and the responses were brilliant. Over the course of the evening we were visited by Human Synthesizer, Super Ears, and 12 Feet in Mouth Guy. It was inspiring to see people self-identify and visualize behaviors and skills that highlighted their strengths.
Thank you to everyone who came, participated, and conquered. You made the night a ton of fun!
