Design Thinking: A concept that helps us to help organizations create value for consumers
It was in the 70s when a group of creatives developed a new framework for design and marketing with a more human-centric focus: Design Thinking. While today this often means different things to different people, we like to see it as the Right Brain component of a brand development process, as the structural and philosophical scaffolding that brings clarity to a project and allows the creation of a brand story and captivating visuals.
A problem-solving method that puts the consumer's needs first.
It involves empathy, observing how people interact with their environments, and creating innovative solutions through an iterative process. This approach is "human-centered," meaning it focuses on how consumers use a product or service rather than assumptions about how they will use it.
Design Thinking is essential because it helps us to help organizations create value for consumers, solve complex problems, lead to more innovative solutions, and make organizations run more efficiently. It follows a five-stage process: empathizing, defining the problem, ideating, prototyping, and testing. It is widely used in private and public sectors for business and personal projects. It's also a process that creates systemic design solutions that can be applied internally and externally.
Systemic design can be very impactful, with the capability to connect silos and sectors. Not just as a drum to sell more stuff but as a finely tuned violin, an instrument to influence people’s hearts and minds.

The New Role Of The Designer
Today, designers have a critical role to play. Design builds a bridge between technical innovation and its application. And this is where it gets essential, not just in their application to the marketplace by introducing new products or services but also in their ability to promote change by making complex things understandable and relatable. Systemic design can be very impactful, with the capability to connect silos and sectors.
