A workshop in 2 sessions:
Session 1 Saturday 18 February
Session 2: Saturday 25 February.
Is this workshop for you?
This 2-day intensive is primarily for undergrad students (or recent graduates) of a design-focused course. It is also a good introduction to collaborative, human-centred ideation methodologies for non-designers newly entering the design thinking field. It presumes little (if any) commercial experience.
What will you do?
Over the course of the 2 days, you will be led through an investigation of your identity as a designer, how you recognise your own processes, and how to audit this process to have breadth, applicability and flexibility — invaluable skills when entering into diverse and cross-functional design teams.
Through challenging activities and rapid-prototyping, you will be interrogating your understanding of 'design process' through the use of various techniques and methods borrowed from specialist non-design fields, and applying them to extract insight and design with value.
What will you learn?
At the end of the workshop, you shoud be equipped with the basics of how to build a unique, personalised toolkit of methodologies and approaches that you can utilise as you need, to have synthesised unrecognised knowledge you already have, to recognise and implement some challenging new working practices and methods, and possess a wider perspective on collaborative learning, designing and communicating.
