toolkit

We curate workshops and activities that are fun, interactive and hands-on for participants to learn and experiment the principles of Design Thinking.

 

 
 

The Design Thinking Process is a creative approach to problem-solving. Generally, it involves identifying the problem and hypothesising opportunities through the lens of human behaviour.

FISHING GAME

We want to understand your goals, needs and frustrations to help solve your problem.

Lost in Translation

Materials: Sharpies, Pen & Paper

Very often, we find ourselves victims of our own assumptions. This exercise is designed to simplify and interpret text and visuals when verbal communication is not an option. 

By immersing ourselves in the users' perspectives, we are then forced to refocus and remove our assumptions.
