Episode 16: Farewell fake news!

Episode 16: Farewell fake news!

Fake or altered media is an accepted norm of our daily lives, but not only does it spread misinformation and enable fraud – it has completely eroded public trust in digital media as a whole. Truepic is tackling the problem head-on by using revolutionary technology to ensure we can trust what we see online. We sit down with Truepic’s former VP of Research & Development, Sherif Hanna, to hear how their tech paves the way for a healthier and more transparent society. From elections to activism, Tinder dates to Airbnb. This is the last episode of ‘Can Design Save Us?’ for a while. We’re looking to return in the new year with even more incredible design stories.

Episode 15: The magic of mushrooms

Beyond soulful dishes to psychedelics, mushrooms and their root systems, known as mycelium, are proving to be critical to our survival. And London-based studio BIOHM is tapping into their true potential. This month, we talk to Director of Design Oksana Bondar about BIOHM’s mission to revolutionise the built world. She shares what it’s like designing with living organisms, how her early kitchen experiments led to a career in sustainability, and why she believes we’re just scratching the surface when it comes to truly symbiotic design.

Episode 14: Oui! to women's health

More than 922 million women worldwide use contraceptives, yet the area has seen limited innovation. We sit down with Cirqle Biomedical, the Danish company behind the world’s first hormone-free contraceptive. OUI, a tiny clear capsule, works just a few minutes after insertion. Design Manager Marie Lyhne gives us the inside scoop on breaking taboos around sex and how conversations with thousands of women all around the world shaped the design of what they hope will be the go-too for birth control.
