A creative and fun PSD session

A snapshot from the vocal sketching exercise at the PSD session, August 22. Original idea and material by Inger Ekman, modified by Cumhur Erkut.

We had a really creative and fun Product Sound Design session at the Studio of the Aalto Design Factory, within the Helsinki Summer School IPD course. Antti, Juho, and I thank all the participants for their energy and great ideas.
