Design thinking is a powerful process for creative problem solving. It starts with unmet user needs, understanding people’s problems and pain points in user journeys and customer experiences.
Approaching real world problems with a “design thinker's mindset” means building great empathy towards the people we are designing for, to create true user-centric solutions.

I organize and lead design thinking workshops for companies and NGO organizations.

Design Thinking Project for Healthy Nutrition at Schools in Need

Our human-centered design project 'Pepino' was geared towards a nutritional problem manifesting itself in many low income schools. Our pitch proposed a unique solution  to inspire and promote healthy eating at schools and the impact of wholesome nutrition for children and teenagers. The project was an Acumen+ / Ideo guided certificate class for social entrepreneurship.
