My Story with “Design Thinking”
Why do I start with Design Thinking? Design Thinking helps me create actionable goals and make meaningful resolutions.
I am a "Designer"
I was a mentee at the San Francisco headquarters of Twitter, and my mentor suggested that I attend a workshop on "Design Thinking" at Stanford University's Design School (D-School). I've had conversations with leaders in Silicon Valley on the importance of the impacts of design thinking on our business world. They encourage me to enroll in the training programs available by IDEO, the largest and best institution in Silicon Valley for such field. I began practicing from them and working with them on projects online in 2017, and as of present now, I have a number of certifications verifying that I am a "Creative Designer" by IDEO.
In order to begin our creative process and ultimately produce a new product, service, or even a business model for the audience we are designing for, we begin the job that we do with passion out of a desire to understand what matters to people.
