  • I'm a designer and an educator.

  • I'm a multitasking person, and I push my students

  • to fly through a very creative, multitasking design process.

  • But how efficient is, really, this multitasking?

  • Let's consider for a while the option of monotasking.

  • A couple of examples.

  • Look at that.

  • This is my multitasking activity result. (Laughter)

  • So trying to cook, answering the phone, writing SMS,

  • and maybe uploading some pictures

  • about this awesome barbecue.

  • So someone tells us the story about supertaskers,

  • so this two percent of people who are able

  • to control multitasking environment.

  • But what about ourselves, and what about our reality?

  • When's the last time you really enjoyed

  • just the voice of your friend?

  • So this is a project I'm working on,

  • and this is a series of front covers

  • to downgrade our super, hyper

  • (Laughter) (Applause)

  • to downgrade our super, hyper-mobile phones

  • into the essence of their function.

  • Another example: Have you ever been to Venice?

  • How beautiful it is to lose ourselves in these little streets

  • on the island.

  • But our multitasking reality is pretty different,

  • and full of tons of information.

  • So what about something like that

  • to rediscover our sense of adventure?

  • I know that it could sound pretty weird to speak about mono

  • when the number of possibilities is so huge,

  • but I push you to consider the option of

  • focusing on just one task,

  • or maybe turning your digital senses totally off.

  • So nowadays, everyone could produce his mono product.

  • Why not? So find your monotask spot

  • within the multitasking world.

  • Thank you.

  • (Applause)
