1. Design for the Future

Design has quickly become an indispensable competency for success in the future of work. Not only is design an important skill that can set candidates apart in competitive job markets, but also an ongoing journey of discovery that can transform how businesses operate.

As such, research into new approaches for designing for the future of work has intensified in recent years, such as studies that consider design’s relationship to other areas of expertise (Kimbell 2009 and Pacenti, Sangiorgi & Holmlid 2010), yet less attention has been paid to what practices designers and design students employ when creating for tomorrow.

As an example, a high school student working on a project to assist people with disabilities could use Design Thinking principles to craft an app that improves lives significantly, or an architect could use design principles to construct more resilient buildings that adapt to extreme weather, or health monitoring systems that reduce hospital readmission rates.

Design for the Future explores how emerging trends can be leveraged as inputs to design processes and futures thinking can provide actionable insights to drive innovation and change. Led by award-winning design futurists, this hands-on experience teaches participants how to interact with future and turn interactions into valuable lessons for today.

The Advanced Design & Research Award is open to academics who possess an impressive research background, are actively designing or researching multidisciplinary projects and place special emphasis on design as an interdisciplinary factor. The competition is composed of three streams: 1. The Core Stream which covers Design Theory and Advanced Design in order to establish literature, taxonomies and fundamental definitions; 2. 3. Applied Advanced Design which emphasizes the practical application of theory through Design Management, Strategy, and Research to unearth patterns of thinking and collect base principles before beginning design; and 3. Multidisciplinary Stream which looks into other fields to examine its vision, role, processes or tools that have been created or integrated to address various design needs in these domains.

4. Design for Experience

As customer expectations evolve, so must design processes. Experience Design has emerged as an alternative approach that addresses this shift by placing customers at the core of all decisions while developing products, services, and experiences that are useful, usable and enjoyable for them.

Design Thinking offers businesses a more holistic view of how to approach problems, with its main emphasis being to identify customer values and create meaningful experiences that deliver it across product lifecycle. Furthermore, design thinking helps companies reframe problems more effectively as well as optimize how they engage design partners for maximum effectiveness.

Empathy is key in understanding consumer needs and expectations, what motivates them, what’s important to them, and why they behave the way they do. Once empathy has been achieved, you should then move onto defining the problem in detail using all of your research findings and insights – this step serves as the cornerstone for creating your solution strategy.

Start brainstorming ideas and developing solutions using diagramming software like Cacoo to easily brainstorm with your team in real-time, helping ensure everyone works from the same data set. It will also give a visual representation of your thoughts to aid more informed and data-driven decision-making.

Once you have identified some of your top ideas, the next step should be testing and implementation. At this stage, low-fidelity prototypes such as sketches, storyboards, models, or wireframes should be created in order to test whether your concept is actually viable.
