Design Challenge

We had another fantastic workshop this past Friday, this time facilitated by four designers from Fjord ( ), a service design consultancy that specializes in understanding and creating customer experiences, particularly in a digital form. Here are bio's of our facilitators.

As part of the workshop, our teams got a crash course in making prototypes with PopApp ( ), a rapid prototyping app that literally allows you to create a clickable prototype with a phone, some paper and a pen in less than 30 minutes. Check out what some of the teams came up with in just 30 minutes! (Example 1 , Example 2 ) .

Design Wednesdays - This Week!

Come to JMHH F45 on Wed Oct 9 @ 12pm-120pm

Innovation is one of the hottest buzzwords in the business world, but what does it really mean in terms of a career for you? This Wednesday Wharton Design will demystify the types of opportunities available for students interested in the innovation space.

Career Management Resources: Robyn Ettinger from Career Management is going to speak about where students interested in innovation typically end up full-time, and new opportunities for Wharton students in the innovation space. She will also provide an overview of how best to use Career Management in your job search.

Landscape: Wharton Design's Career VPs will give an overview of the innovation landscape; What are the large sub-industries, who are the significant players, and where are there unexpected opportunities.

Discussion Panel: . David Wynne (Navistar, Newbalance, Alcoa, etc) . Hiro Ellis (frog, Innovation Consulting) . Anant Gupta (Fahrenheit 212, Innovation Consulting) . Izzy Park (Deloitte Innovation+Growth, Incubator) . John Pettengill (Razorfish, Digital Agency)

Curious about Design? Check out a recent post to the website by our co-President, Dave Wynne, setting a common foundation:

How can you start? If you'd like to start flexing your design thinking muscles in everyday life, check out "50 Problems in 50 Days" ( ) by Pete Smart. Pete travels over 2,500 miles to try and solve 50 simple problems (e.g. my soup is too hot- let me use my sleeves) in 50 days. It proves you don't have to be a designer to come up with solutions to problems- you just need to make a commitment to "the other" -- in understanding the user.
