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 should have access to Adobe Creative Cloud design software to complete assignments.
