This class will focus on the process of invention and how to create quality designs (products specifically) through a straightforward series of steps that provide – even for those who consider themselves to be uncreative – a path to new, innovative, well executed ideas.
Using empathy, iteration, imagination, and a dedication to problem solving (let your inner Sherlock shine!), you’ll follow along with me as I design a portable smartphone amplifier to illustrate the concepts I’ll be covering in each lesson.
Inventing is by no means a mindless paint-by-numbers process, but a systematic way of thinking – both in and out of the box – to create meaningful products that solve problems and have the potential to change lives for the better.
Let’s design a thing!
