This workshop is for designers and non-designers alike. It takes participants through a people-centred creative process that engages diverse people as a point of inspiration and design innovation. You will journey through Hong Kong to meet directly with people who have differing social needs – people of different ages, abilities and with different attitudes and perspectives. You will explore a creative process where you will learn how to observe the day-to-day interactions of our built and social environments, including interviewing people to understand issues and use this as ways to explore new trajectories for design, innovation and social impact.
You will then use “rapid prototyping” methods to “ideate” and “create quickly”, producing design proposals in a short period of time. You will go through the whole design process in one day!
• You will advance your creative capabilities
• You will see how to use and apply people-centred design
• You will learn prototyping methods you can use the very next day
• You will see how to use design to make a social impact
The workshop will introduce you to practical tools that can be used immediately and will showcase innovative approaches to communication, product and service design that are being used around the world to create leading edge global innovations.
