“Design thinking is a term that arose in order to distinguish between what others think of as design, which is usually just the surface, to the thinking behind. Thinking is something you do first, and then you make.” Paul Pangaro, CTO, CyberneticLifestyles.com, in Design & Thinking.

The documentary Design & Thinking grabs businessman, designers, social change makers and unlikely individuals to portrait all they have in common when facing this ambiguous 21st century.
The film is inspired by design thinking and aims to bring forward the process and ambiguity of how designers and creative people think and do things. Change-making organisations like Code for America are put next to local bike shops and Coca-Cola to provide real world inspirations of Design Thinking. The documentary also shows Design Thinking thought leaders share their beliefs as skeptics progress the movie in a thought-provoking fashion. All the leaders believe asking the right questions is more important than providing form answers.
If you are interested in Design Thinking and would like to learn more, purchase a ticket to the Design Thinking Workshop and Big Opportunities talk, led by Christian Bason of MindLab, to be held in Spacecubed on November 7, 2012.
