TED talks* seek to inspire, challenge those who listen. As designers, it’s easy to get stuck in a rut and to feel at a loss for inspiration. Turn to these short recorded ted talks on design (all under 18 minutes each), to gain new perspectives and to easily dialogue with the ever changing design community. Here are ten of our favorite design related TED talks.
*TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. Their tagline is, "New Ideas Everyday." These talks are given in regional conferences across the world. Afterwards, the recorded videos are curated by a national TED body which uploads the best of TED onto ted.com.
