Design thinking is a problem-solving process that focuses on empathy, listening, collaboration, observation, critical analysis, and experimentation to drive innovation. Design thinking can be applied to a wide range of fields from product design to urban planning. This studio/seminar introduces students to design thinking. Students will work collaboratively to explore real-world problems through stages of the design process, such as inspiration, ideation and implementation. Topics include visualization, mapping, storytelling, prototyping and testing.
Students are required to provide their own computers with Adobe Creative Cloud design software, writing materials and sticky notes to complete assignments. Basic knowledge of Adobe Photoshop and Adobe Illustrator is recommended.
