    Design Thinking for the Design Office:

    This webinar will focus on some real-life Design Thinking projects, including the methodology used within our own design office in Brussels. It will delve into the methodology, not from a theoretical point of view, but from a practical point of view, something that is lacking in many of the books and online videos found on this topic.

    Although introduced in the 1970’s, the Design Thinking methodology has gained great momentum in the past five years alone. It brings in originality, visual impact, strong statements and integration into the existing architecture. It mostly emphasises on iteration and experimentation that is becoming more prevalent and accepted across market sectors.
