What's on

A short, practical & affordable weekend course on on Design Thinking and how to apply art techniques to your design process.

This hands-on workshop will enable people to look beyond day to day process into the areas where they can draw aspirations from, without using ‘best practice’ of the ‘next kids on the block’. We will be mainly drawing the inspiration from art-related methods and learning how to stretch own ways of thinking and confines.

The course will cover:

  • new methods to approach design challenges
  • interface design exercise
  • process design exercise
  • concept creation
  • book recommendations
  • live QnA
