Design Thinking?

One of the great things about being a left-brainer is that I tend to see, think, and experience design thinking whenever I can. What is design thinking anyway? It might sound abstract to most. I define design thinking quite literally; thinking about the way our world, and the many systems that exist within it are designed to work as separate and collaborative machines. Design thinking can be simple as studying the way a butterfly is painted and the way it moves when it stretches to eat its lunch. Design thinking can be as complex as peering out of your airplane window in the evening and noticing the way a city's light system is structured, and realizing how amazingly cool it looks. Understanding the importance of both the beauty and functionality that exists within our world is what separates designers from non-designers. This blog allows me to share my design thinking experiences with you.
