What is 'Design & Thinking'?
Produced by One Time Studio in San Francisco, 'Design & Thinking' was funded via a successful Kickstarter campaign and features interviews with a some of the world's best design minds--including laptop inventor and IDEO cofounder Bill Moggridge; Smart Design cofounder Dan Formosa; and AIGA CEO Richard Grefe. One Time Studio's Yang Yu Hsiu says: "From our point of view, design thinking did a good job of bringing forward the value of design to address changes in the world. There have been many backlashes over the topic recently. We want to introduce many voices by form of documentary to look at the topic neutrally. It is important for people to know both the good and bad of design thinking, at the same time."
View this new documentary and then engage with our panelists and your peers as we further explore this fascinating topic and how its impact is being felt in Seattle, Vancouver, and beyond.

Karyn founded Analytic Design Group in 2005, a company dedicated to the cause that great design is not just a good concept well executed, but an idea that resonates, a product or innovation that knows not just what it's doing but why it will work. Through deep analysis and contextual inquiry aimed at getting to the why we help our clients design powerful digital experiences, reduce the risk of innovation, and, sometimes, predict the future. Instead of following the latest trends, copying their competitors, knowing why puts our clients in the driver's seat.
