Good design is elegant, simple, and has the appearance of being effortless, but it requires detailed, time-consuming work behind the scenes. Ayse Birsel, an award-winning product designer of twenty years, has taken that aesthetic of honest, beautiful design (with hard work and investment) and applied it to everyday life — in a smart, practical way. Her book is called “Design the Life You Love: a Step-By-Step Guide to Building a Meaningful Future,” and offers enormous possibilities for redesigning your life, using her four simple steps.
She’s in Seattle this week doing a couple of different events, so if you’ve been hunting for that life overhaul of your dreams or just dragging a bit before the holiday season, you should check out what she’s all about. Ayse will be at the Central Library on Thursday for a talk and workshop, and a live podcast recording on Friday night. Go. Redesign your life.
