New To Design Thinking?

For those brand new to Design Thinking, be sure to check out Design Thinking University (April 15), curated specially for attendees who are looking to jump start their Design Thinking journey.

This introduction to Design Thinking provides a crash course on the design thinking mindset, from the fundamentals of human-centered design to design thinking mindset in practice. Beyond just the step-by-step methodology, take this opportunity to live human-centered design with the opportunity to address real case challenges and conduct primary research through interaction with Austin’s lively downtown scene.

See What You Missed!

Have FOMO? Our 2019 Design Thinkers kept it weird in Austin, attending Design Thinking University, listening to rock star keynote sessions from USAA, PepsiCo, Dick's Sporting Goods, and even had a rock, paper, scissor contest with GE Healthcare's Design Thinking Lead-Global Design. Get ready for #DesignThinking2020 because it's going to be bigger than ever.
