TypeClub Film Screening: Design & Thinking


 Typographer par excellence Lisa Sy ’13 sez:

TypeClub will present a film screening of DESIGN & THINKING, which is a documentary that explores “design thinking.”
A description of the movie:
How do we fully engage organizations to think about the changing landscape of business, culture and society? Inspired by design thinking, this documentary grabs businessman, designers, social change-makers and individuals to portrait what they have in common when facing this ambiguous 21st century. What is design thinking? How is it applied in business models? How are people changing the worldwith their own creative minds? It is a call to the conventional minds to change and collaborate.Learn more about TypeClub at  [ http://typeclub.org ]
