About the author

Damien Lutz is a UX Designer and Researcher, sci-fi author, and very amateur drone pilot.

He is the author of sci-fi novels Amanojaku and The Lenz, a contributor to Vodafone’s Red Wire tech blog, and he writes about designing with fiction on Medium. His game version of Future Scouting has been used in the University of Moratuwa, Sri Lanka and was an honouree Education Design Initiative in the 2021 Core77 Design Awards. His One Heart Treaty concept was a semi-finalist in the United Nation’s 2020 Futuring Peace initiative.

When he is not designing, Damien is doing his best to not lose another drone.

"Lutz’ book gives us a toolkit to widen our frame of vision and stretch our creativity."

"A very good text for someone who wants tobe introduced to futures & foresight knowledege."

"I liked the focus on designing for core values."
