That was the main focal point of this weeks symposium. At least that’s what I think it was. I tried so hard to stay attentive the whole way through but after about twenty minutes I realised that my mind had wandered somewhere completely off topic and I hadn’t been listening to much of the past discussion.
However, when Adrian began speaking about Design Thinking, I switched on again. He said that he believed we, as media students, should start looking at ourselves as designers. The importance of designers is readily growing, demonstrating the effect they have on our surroundings. Designers make, learn and engage with things that exist in the world. Designers are prepped to make things that will have an impact on the future. Designers have the ability to look forward.
