Our Approach of Design Thinking

Our engagement rests on these 4 pillars

Transformation in the thought process is indispensable before the practical application of Design Thinking. The process of conditioning the mindset is called preparing the Design Mind.

Space has a great impact on the human mind. We need to leverage spatial elements that help cross-collaboration and cross-pollination of ideas among stakeholders.

Ideas need the support of stakeholders for actualization. As every stakeholder has stated and unstated needs and interests, sustainable models are required to bind all stakeholders. These models are called Design Frameworks.

The actual Design Process is a 5-step process that leverages unique Design tools for practical application. The process and the tools are indigenously designed.
