For the May meetup we'll continue our four part series that will break design thinking down into four phases: Immerse, Frame, Imagine, and Prototype. In each each month of the series we will explore one of the four phases in depth, as well as how to apply the associated methods and mindsets to a range of different industries and situations. This month we're going to focus on the Frame phase with an emphasis on tools and frameworks that help us synthesize data, frame an opportunity space, and fall in love with needs rather than solutions.

There is no need to have attended the previous months workshops- each workshop is designed to stand alone even if you were not able to attend prior events.

As always, come prepared to engage in a highly experiential workshop, meet a diverse collection of fellow innovators, and learn tools you can use to help make Seattle a human-centered and innovative city!


The generous support from our sponsors helps keep this Meetup free to the community and supports spreading design thinking across all Seattle industries.
