  2. BUILT WORK SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN DESIGNER BIO Design Management Work Experience Architecture, Urban Studies + Architectural History NORTHEASTERN UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF ARCHITECTURE Stephen White grew up in Washington, DC. He received his Bachelor of Science in Architecture & Urban Design with minor in Architectural History from Northeastern University in 2011 before working as a contracted interior architect at National Geographic Channels under the name of his interior design business, EmersonWhite design. He has worked in various design firms internationally and has experience in high-end residential and boutique mixed-use architecture, interior design, furniture, branding, graphics, design strategy. In the larger context of design strategy and innovation, he craves to never be pigeonholed into any one type of project with the over arching goal remaining the same - to satisfy project demands through thoughtful, researched design solutions that push boundaries in design, social thinking, while staying true to clients’ vision with honest, modern, and clean aesthetics. His hope is to lead creative teams across multiple design industries through facilitative techniques that push creativity, thought innovation, and spark solution. Currently he lives in Savannah, Georgia where he is pursuing his Masters degree in Design Management and has recently applied to add a Masters in Luxury and Fashion Management.

In the case of gender identity within the fashion industry, we find the societal norms of gender to be our major roadblock. By harnessing this concept to our benefit, we can apply its to our drive for gender inclusiveness in order to achieve our potential goals of eradication of gender limitations, non-binary society, and gender expansiveness. Everett M. Roger’s Diffusion of Innovation Strategy Roger’s diffusion strategy includes five over arching sectors shown below. These five sectors drive rates of adoption by categories of users beginning with innovators and followed by early adopters, late adopters, and laggards. Each group of potential users will allow innovations to diffuse through the five sectors at different times and in different orders. Using this method we can anticipate the implications of diffusion, and predict the way in which the population will react to our design solutions.

Service Package Analysis (below) The service package analysis allows us to hone in on the levels of importance by which our social network innovation will operate. Our core service at the heart of our business states what the most important value of the company. The secondary ring shows enabling services that allow us to ensure quality and usability of our core service, and further out are enhancing services that are not imperative to the over arching idea, but will improve the features of the company during expansion, scaling, and when offering new services. Word Associations | Mind Mapping (above) Word associations and mind mapping allow are useful tools that help us visualize ideas surrounding a core concept. In this case, the core concept was “digital viewing community” and the tools were used to help identity a name for our brand. Through these exercises we identified buzzwords, important concepts, and underlying relationships of the industry. | The Real Life Social Cinema DMGT 720 - Design Development Innovation, Winter 2016 .us hangout pad crashpad lodge plat den sanctuary cave dwelling base quarters crib park hotel digs home house club see watch view chill follow eye flash spot stream peek look wonder meet catch search frontrow scope premiere you me we they crew mob army unit team force swarm cluster posse crowd troop squad pack clique movie cinema show film network motionpicture bijou bigscreen playhouse theater cine pictureshow flick screenplay drive-in silverscreen filmdom cinematics DIGITAL VIEWING COMMUNITY competitors/ services the who (”watchers”) party groups buzzwords & trends the where the what special events drinks 18+ 21+ adults local businesses the park cafe hotels AirBnB house teens kids millennials housewives dads food birthday date social join together crowded introverts extroverts hangout Netflix & Chill binge watch binge watch flix premiere moviesmusic TV shows Oscars (e.g.) HULU+ iTunes On Demand Amazon Netflix MeetUp educational videos romantic double date feelings friends new friends friends pen pals online pals any- where cocktails $$$ prom home- coming your place my place free app monthly pay fancy annual pay-per show- hole season 6 IG out of your shell free love twitter FB #
  6. Real Life User-Friendly Scalability Social Flexibility Digital Spider Diagram | White Space Spider Diagrams allow us to visualize the driving forces behind the business concept, versus the way in which they are maintained under the business strategies of our competitors. By showing the overlapping values of our competitor companies, we can locate market space to focus our own efforts on to maintain a high level of uniqueness that separates us from the pack. | The Real Life Social Cinema DMGT 720 - Design Development Innovation, Winter 2016 .us
  7. Good & Different | SWOT Analysis | Blue Ocean Strategy Good & Different charts, SWOT analysis, and Blue Ocean Strategy allow us to analyze the ocean of our competitors. Through collaborative design strategy methods, we are able to uncover strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats to help locate white space in the marketplace. White space shows the gaps in which the design team can begin to ideate design solutions for. It provides project parameters through which within an untouched sector of an industry can be defined and by looking for patterns and connections in and around the white space, we can tailor our solutions into being a product, brand, or service that is completely unique. | The Real Life Social Cinema DMGT 720 - Design Development Innovation, Winter 2016 .us

  10. SPIRIT PRODUCTS RESTAURANT RETAIL GALLERY/MUSIC PARKS/PUBLIC EMOTIONAL PHYSICAL EPHEMERAL SPACE Ecosystem Map of Ephemeral Space Typologies The ecosystem map shows the relationships within a variety of parameters of this project. At the center is ephemerlity of built space, with three rings circumventing one another. These three rings embody our project on a physical level, an emotional level, and a spiritual level. The design of space can be influenced by each of these categories, and through research, we uncovered which spaces lend themselves more to ephemerality and how closely they relate to the major tiers within the ecosystem of designing space. Fluid Relationships Diagram The diagram of fluid relationships shows the connections between the values at the heart of our research project, the concepts we designed that stem from our overarching values, and a collection of secondary and primary data points gathered through research, that all live and function at varying degrees of connectedness within the greater scope of the project.

  13. National Geographic Channels Interior Architecture & Brand Strategy Program: 2,000 sq. ft. Commercial Lobby Renovation Location: Washington, DC Concept: To modernize the entryway to the third floor office space of the National Geographic Channel in their headquarters buildings. It was imperative to create a lobby for the company’s daily users and guests to congregate in, while incorporating elements of Nat Geo Channel’s brand as a media mogul.

Location: Charlestown, Massachusetts Concept: Located at an important urban intersection, the project was designed to impact and augment interactions between the building’s users at various intersections within the building and site environments. The diagrid alleviates the need for massive interior structural elements and allows for flexibility in plan, while acting as a cellular skin to house energy harvesting technologies.

On each typical floor, glass partitions incorporate hanging parking spots for renters to showcase their bicycles and see which of their neighbors and friends are home.
