The future is Brian David Johnson's business. As a futurist at Intel Corp., his charter is to develop an actionable vision for computing in 2020. His work is called "future casting" -- using ethnographic field studies, technology research, trend data, and even science fiction to provide Intel with a pragmatic vision of consumers and computing. Along with reinventing TV, Johnson has been pioneering development in artificial intelligence, robotics, and using science fiction as a design tool. He speaks and writes extensively about future technologies in articles and scientific papers as well as science fiction short stories and novels (Science Fiction Prototyping: Designing the Future with Science Fiction, Screen Future: The Future of Entertainment Computing and the Devices We Love, Fake Plastic Love, and Nebulous Mechanisms: The Dr. Simon Egerton Stories). He has directed two feature films and is an illustrator and commissioned painter.
Jordan Berg brings more than eight years of visual communications and design experience to Questus. He has experience in both interactive advertising and traditional design. Berg has recently completed projects for world-class brands such as Suzuki, Wells Fargo, GE, and ESPN. One of his key strengths is synthesizing research and strategy with award-winning design. This unique approach has landed him in both Communication Arts and InStyle magazine.
