Many people are being struck with startup fever in recent years, and people from all disciplines are unexpectedly finding themselves gravitating towards this fast paced and innovative arena. Recently we had the opportunity to be on a panel at CalArts, where we spoke to students about how to transition from being an artist, to being a part of the tech-heavy startup world. We also discussed the importance of understanding and implementing UX and UI when creating a digital product. In this episode, Zach and I have a roundtable discussion with the 3rd member of the CalArts panel discussion, Damjan Krajacic (the founder of the design studio ActiveColor), continuing our conversation on these topics.

Post-Screen Design
With technology innovation moving at the speed of light, devices we have grown accustomed to are now moving farther away from visual design and moving more towards Artificial Intelligence run interfaces. This is starting to reduce the way and capacity in which we interact and rely on the screens of our devices. Eventually technology will integrate with minimal graphics as we approach more advanced AI and augmented reality (AR) based experiences. What will UX and UI designers create when screen usage diminishes? We discuss our theories and predictions on this topic. Check out our blog: www.creativehoney.org Music By: Lee Rosevere
