Fjord have recently started a podcast series called Fjord Fika, the Swedish word for slowing down and catching up with colleagues and friends over coffee and pastry. (Germans have a long tradition of Kaffee und Kuchen that I rather miss in Australia).

The Fika podcast features unscripted conversations with key luminaries and thought leaders in technology and design. We aim to take a fresh, honest look at all sides of innovation – the good, the bad and the ugly – and the impact on society. I had the pleasure of speaking my friend, multiple author and visual thinker extraordinaire, Dave Gray

He and I have often had long and interesting conversations that I wish we had recorded. And now we have. You can find it here and in all the usual places you get your podcasts. Have a listen and tell us what you think. Twitter is a good place for comments. 

Core77 Broadcast interview with Troika

by Andy Polaine on May 6, 2008

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of interviewing Sebastien and Eva from Troika, the studio behind the Cloud and All The Time In The World installations at new Terminal 5 at Heathrow. So, if you were one of the hundreds stuck at Terminal 5 when it opened, at least you had something decent to marvel at.

Troika are unusual in their combination of disciplines, I feel. It’s not so often that graphic and motion graphic design and this kind of interactive installation work come together – architecture is the more usual bedfellow.

I found it very interesting to hear them talk about the development of their creative palette and language of the objects they create as well as how some of the seemingly tiny technical issues can end up defining a massive part of the work.

You can have a listen to the interview on Core77.

Interview with Nik Roope from Hulger & Poke

July 20, 2007

My first Core77 Broadcast with Nik Roope about Hulger has just gone online. It should become one of a series of podcasts for Core77 and I’m really pleased because it’s one of my regular reads. Core77 started out (and still bills itself) as the “industrial design supersite”, though their remit has become somewhat wider, which […]
