"We are at a critical point where rapid change is forcing us to look not just to new ways of solving problems but to new problems to solve."

Tim Brown, 2009.

Changes in context are demanding new competences and presenting new perspectives. At the same time, these new competences, along with this new way of thinking (known as design thinking) are leveraging innovation and bringing new changes.

"When design is stripped from forming, shaping and styling, what is left is a process of critical thinking and creative problem solving - that is the essence of design... design thinking is about applying the principles of design to solutions for businesses."

Roger Martin, 2009 & Tim Brown, 2009.

when?

"It's always tea time."

Lewis Carrol, 1865.

It´s always tea time. Or even coffee time. There are time restrictions for training activities, that is true, due to other firm commitments. But, as Kevin Rose would put it, if you believe in something, work during nights and weekends at it will never feel like work!

where?

where?

"At first our world was narrow, because earth was huge. Today our world is very broad, because earth has gotten small." (Free translation).

Gilberto Gil, 1992.

At your Company, or at our spaces, the important thing is the journey, and not the destination. Your needs and the context will help us to define where our interaction is going to take place!

why?

"Every self-respecting designer should do something. Come up with new ideas, dust down old ideas and place them in a new context. Silence the cynics. Let the politicians know that wheeling and dealing achieves little. Prove that actions speak louder than words. Demonstrate the power of design. Designers can do more than make things pretty. Design is more than perfume, aesthetics and trends. Design has a crucial role as a force for change, and change is badly needed right now."

Richard van der Laken, 2015.
