Innovation is applied creativity. Designers need to know personal practice, innovation techniques, and how to implement their ideas. This class teaches all three techniques through a combination of reflection, focused exercise, and the creation of plans.
How do market forces shape the way we live, work, and even play? Students in this class look at business through a designer’s eye to understand the interplay between producers and consumers, governments and people, stockholders and stakeholders, man and the environment, and how all of these factors interconnect and ultimately direct how our products, processes, and systems are created.
