Designing Across Timezones

How do we collaborate across timezones? Creatively.

This year, Design Lab branched out to the FHI 360 Asia Pacific Regional office in Thailand. We use Google hangouts, Skype calls, video messages, annotated PDFs, What’s App, Viber, Facebook pokes, etc. to stay in touch.

Irinn explaining a die-cut concept to Anne (with Kung behind the camera).

“Hello from +12 Hours into the Future” via Google Hangout: 9:30am EST — 9:30pm ICT (Bangkok time)

Sending sketches before a call.

Irinn and Kung at Lumpini Park

So Irinn turns out to be a fantastic photographer and Kung a very persuasive model recruiter. Some never-before-seen images for a planned TEDxLumpiniWomen JR InsideOut Project collab.
