What is Design?

Design is multidisciplinary. It plays a part in everything you interact with in your daily life - the devices you use, the stores you shop in, the benches you sit on, the cities you inhabit. They were all designed for a particular purpose. While design touches more fields than can be listed here, design thinking applies to all of them. Design thinking is a method of developing understanding, brainstorming ideas, evaluating concepts with prototypes, and iterating. Want to learn more? Check out the list of courses below.
