Hi, I’m Heddi Ried, Illustrator in the field of Speculative Design*, born & based in Berlin. The illustrations and drawings I do are used as a visual foresight booster along the fields of science, technology and society. I create future scenarios, speculative objects, personas, leitmotifs, complex design processes, key visuals, visual records and collaborate in the field of experimental workshops and enabling spaces which include murals and ideation tools among other things.

Speculative Design* is understood as critical and researching design. (Anthony Dunne & Fiona Raby, Speculative Everything, 2013). On the one hand future scenarios and artifacts are designed that push current and unthinkable themes to the extreme, making them visible and debatable. On the other hand Speculative Design can also be seen as a process of imagination. This kind of imagination produces knowledge by trying to transform reality. (Victoria Peréz Royo, José A. Sánchez, Cristina Blanco: In-definitions, 2013)
