Design Thinking Happy Hour!
Our 2018 workshop series may be over, but we've heard from you loud and clear that you still want opportunities to keep connecting with the Seattle design thinking community. We are excited to host a Design Thinking happy hour- no workshops, no structured activities, just good people and a chance to connect (or reconnect) with others who are passionate about bringing human-centered design to their industries/communities. We will have a table at Fremont Brewing Co on Tuesday 10/23 from 4PM-6:30PM- swing by, say hi, and bring your design thinking questions and success (or failure) stories to share! For those who have been wanting to attend but couldn't make our 4th Thursday events, we've intentionally scheduled this on a different day in the hopes you might be able to join us. In true design thinking spirit, this is a bit of a prototype- if lots of people attend and give a thumbs up, we'll try to host more of these. If you have other ideas of events you'd like to see, leave a message and inspire us! (or better yet, let us know if you'd like to help host/plan an event). Special thanks to Meetup members Celine and Amy for planning this event- make sure to say thanks if you see them there!

What we're about

Design Thinking Seattle aims to bring people together from a wide variety of industries, backgrounds and roles to collaborate and discuss practices, methodologies, tactics and experiences to help us collectively bring innovative ideas to the world.

Our vision is to build a community of innovators, design thinkers, and creative catalysts who are passionate about design thinking and bringing creative confidence to their teams and industries. We believe that by sharing ideas, methods, and stories with each other, we are all better equipped to lead a creative revolution for ourselves, our colleagues and our industries. Who should attend? Anyone who is currently trying to build an innovation culture in their organization, anyone who is curious about design thinking and creativity, and design thinkers who are already practicing but want to connect to the greater Seattle innovation community. What will I get out of it? A network of fellow creatives and catalysts, new ideas for your own practice, and case studies and tips for how to bring innovation tools and mindsets back to your organization.
