This would be our last part of the three-part series to fulfill this ask. Although in this session we would take a get into Prototyping, we would start the session with a recap of the first two sessions. We get familiarize with some fundamental concepts and run through the process of Ideation. So you are still welcome in case if you could not attend the Part-1 & 2.

Here is the structure:

Workshop Part 1: Understanding the fundamental concepts of Design Strategy and Design Thinking through hands-on exercises that would help develop an understanding of the overall context. [SHOULD BE COMPLETED]

Workshop Part 2: Deep dive into Research and Ideate phase and get hands-on some of the crucial tools to develop the strategy. [SHOULD BE COMPLETED]

Workshop Part 3: Prototype possible solutions, Test and Refine using hands-on exercises. Seems straightforward these exercises will help you understand some of the industry best practices.

Our focus is designing for change and creating positive social impact using techniques in Human Centered Design (Design Thinking), UX & Lean.

Our mission is to create communities by educating, building relationships, establishing meaningful goals and seeking fieldwork in the community in Houston and beyond.
