Design for Houston
Calling all Houstonians to design for Houston with Design Thinking
As they say, the best solution ideas come from people who directly face the problem. when it comes to problems faced in the city, it is the citizens who could best identify the problem and provide the appropriate solutions.
Announcing Design for Houston 2020, the event that brings Houstonians from all facets of life to find solutions to everyday problems faced by our city. For two days Houstonians will come together to understand problem context, do quick descriptive research, brainstorm to generate ideas, probably designing MVPs or working prototypes. City experts would be available to share the understanding of internal city processes. Participants would get a chance to learn tools, techniques and best practices of Creative problem solving, Service Design and Design Thinking.
This event has an inherent purpose of spreading Design-mindset among Houstonians. People from all facets of life are welcome to join and learn the design process. Also, as it is a design-event is a great place for professional designers to showcase their skills on solving complex issues. All you design pros out there come and share your knowledge and create something beautiful for your city.
Upon completion of the process, your ideas will be evaluated by a panel of experts and hopefully adopted and put to use by the City of Houston.
