Carla Diana discusses the triumphs and challenges of building the Smart Interaction Lab at Smart Design. A design lab promotes experimenting and encourages sharing what we learn in the process. While it can require political maneuvering to get started, and circus-level juggling to balance with client projects, once established, it can become an organization's secret weapon. The lab promotes future-specting, open-ended exploration, builds community, and gives the outside world a glimpse of what makes the company tick.
