Understanding comes from making. Design thinking typically starts with user research, but does it have to? Our super power as creatives is to not show the world as it is, but rather what it can be. We deliver on that promise when we prototype early and often. Join Chris and Jessica to learn how to draw out human needs and prototype based on those needs in an inclusive, fast way. And who knows? We might create something along the way.
