** Education

** Intensive Workshop: the Design Process

When: 9/24, 11/5, 11/19, and 12/3 from 12:00 - 1:20 Where: TBD

The Design Process is a powerful tool that combines business acumen with a design mentality to create powerful solutions to any problem. In this four part workshop series, we will guide you through the six step Design Process and show you how to leverage this technique in any professional environment.

The workshop will be hands on and immersive, focusing on parlayable skills such as insight derivation, idea generation, and rapid prototyping. Because of the abridged nature of the workshops, it is recommended that participants stay for the entire duration of the session and attend consecutive sessions.
