30 Inspirational TED Talks on Design and Creativity

TED Talks is an annual conference that defines its mission as “ideas worth spreading”. TED stands for Technology, Entertainment and Design. It started out in the early 1984 as a conference, bringing together people from those 3 worlds. Since then, its scope has become ever broader. The annual conference now brings together the world’s most fascinating thinkers and doers, who are challenged to give the talk of their lives.

I think the best part about TED, apart from the quality of their speakers & ideas shared, is the fact that it is all about sharing among the creative commons. This means, their website has a huge plethora of inspirational videos with great production value that are free for people like you and me to watch. There are talks based around advertising, marketing, industrial design, graphic design, and the list goes on and on. The scope of subjects covered is almost overwhelming, but the common thing that bridges them is the creativity of each idea shared.

In this article, I have shared some of the best TED videos related to Design, Inspiration and Creativity. Each of them is more inspirational than the previous. I was completely enlightened by watching the wonderful speeches and we are definitely very lucky and gifted to have such inspirational speakers who are willing share some of their insights and thoughts on the world of design and creativity. Good Luck!

1) David Carson on design + discovery

Great design is a never-ending journey of discovery — for which it helps to pack a healthy sense of humor. Sociologist and surfer-turned-designer David Carson walks through a gorgeous (and often quite funny) slide deck of his work and found images.

2) Milton Glaser on using design to make ideas new

From the TED archives: The legendary graphic designer Milton Glaser dives deep into a new painting inspired by Piero della Francesca. From here, he muses on what makes a convincing poster, by breaking down an idea and making it new.

3) Rory Sutherland: Life lessons from an ad man

Advertising adds value to a product by changing our perception, rather than the product itself. Rory Sutherland makes the daring assertion that a change in perceived value can be just as satisfying as what we consider “real” value — and his conclusion has interesting consequences for how we look at life.

4) Ravin Agrawal: 10 young Indian artists to watch

Collector Ravin Agrawal delivers a glowing introduction to 10 of India’s most exciting young contemporary artists. Working in a variety of media, each draws on their local culture for inspiration.

5) Yann Arthus-Bertrand captures fragile Earth in wide-angle

In this image-filled talk, Yann Arthus-Bertrand displays his three most recent projects on humanity and our habitat — stunning aerial photographs in his series “The Earth From Above,” personal interviews from around the globe featured in his web project “6 billion Others,” and his soon-to-be-released movie, “Home,” which documents human impact on the environment through breathtaking video.
