A beautiful explanation of the power of design in our dynamic and changing context, and a really great definition of Service Design! 

Design is the art of considered creation. Our goal is to satisfy the diverse spectrum of human needs. As those needs evolve, so too must our designs, practices, and philosophies.

THIS IS MATERIAL DESIGN

“Intrapreneurs have to become expert politicians, reaching out across the aisle to enroll, cajole, and inspire.”

Every time I try to explain design thinking to someone, I feel like I digress. And they come away thinking that my aspirational occupation is to simply ‘solve the world’s problems’.

Because I begin to have trouble explaining how design is different to ‘problem solving’.

I say: ‘creative processes can be used to solve problems in the world’, it doesn’t actually sound likenyoure saying much.

Yea. Duh. All problem solving is already creative. Why do you need graphic designers to put down their pencils and say they’re actually a design thinker and problem solver?

I guess it takes a lot of self reflection and introspection to be able to open yourself up to Creativity. I like how we must not become stupified by our own experiences.

Any designer can make something look nice, but a great one figures out the actual problem before jumping to a solution. Designers have to be open and receptive to what customers, clients and stakeholders say. Being good at knowing which questions to ask people is a skill in itself, but having the ability to observe, understand pain points, and execute on solving them are key.”
