Design is the art of considered creation. Our goal is to satisfy the diverse spectrum of human needs. As those needs evolve, so too must our designs, practices, and philosophies. We challenged ourselves to create a visual language for our users that synthesizes the classic principles of good design with the innovation and possibility of technology and science.

A material metaphor is the unifying theory of a rationalized space and a system of motion. Our material is grounded in tactile reality, inspired by our study of paper and ink, yet open to imagination and magic.

This is material design.

Ruben Meerman is a reporter on ABC television’s Catalyst program and Play School’s first ever ‘resident scientist’. Young audiences know him as the ABC’s Surfing Scientist through his books and television science demonstrations. Ruben’s scientific career began as a physicist, producing optical coatings for industrial, medical and military lasers. He eventually found his true calling in schools and kindergartens, where he brings science to life for children. He is passionate about literacy, numeracy, science education and public schools… and (safe) explosions!

In his TEDxQUT talk, Ruben answers the question: When you lose weight… where does it go?

In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
