Designing Our Way to A Better World
Thomas Fisher


“Design arises out of empathy for the real needs of others and often reveals things about a circumstance that those in the midst of it may not see.”

Like a constant discourse of digressing thoughts on social engineering, how and how far can design thinking be utilized to instigate change in the many scenarios of intangible solutions — which ever so often has been the delegated responsibility of people who do not think laterally and acutely enough?
