Great design has the power to challenge and inspire individuals, groups and workplaces. Design thinking draws from the designer’s toolkit to consider the human-centred needs of the consumer, applying innovative ideas to create business solutions.

Understand and pursue innovation with ‘Design Thinking for Communications Professionals,’ an introductory workshop that will provide attendees with grounding in the basic tenets of design thinking, also known as user-centred design.

Recognise the importance of design thinking, know its applications and learn how to think like a creator.

Hosted at Ellis Jones’ Realm of Possibilities, the session will be led by David Constantine, Creative Director at communications and social impact agency, Ellis Jones.
