What is
Design Thinking

Design Thinking is a process to help us prototype, create and innovate. Design Thinking helps shift mindsets: From a consumers mindset to a producers mindset. From an accepting mindset to a questioning mindset. From a passive mindset to an active and empowered mindset.

It is a method of problem-solving strategy wherein the data collected is expressed visually in order to create new strategies, ways and methods to solve problems, create opportunities or strengthen weaknesses.
