Choose to progress into the design industry, further study or personal creative practice. Design is evolving. Play your part in its future. “Design thinking requires bridging the “knowing-doing gap.” The tools of the design thinker, getting out into the world to be inspired by people, using prototyping to learn with our hands, creating stories to share our ideas, joining forces with people from other disciplines, are ways of deepening what we know and widening the impact of what we do.” Tim Brown, CEO, IDEO.
