What we're about

Design Thinking Cincy brings together people who are passionate about design and community engagement. We share techniques, experiences, and practices. We explore Cincinnati through a creative lens. And, we collaborate to shape a more vibrant community.

There are three types of events we organize:

PLAY: Practice design thinking techniques through 90-minute guided workshops.

EXPLORE: Go on organized field trips to sites around the city to get inspired and view our community through a creative lens.

CONNECT: Volunteer for a longer-term engagement with a local organization to apply Design Thinking to a real-life challenge.

What Is Design Thinking?:

Wikipedia: ability to combine empathy for the context of a problem, creativity in the generation of insights and solutions, and rationality to analyze and fit solutions to the context.

Stanford d-School: a human-centered, prototype-driven process for innovation that can be applied to product, service, and business design.

Fast Company: a proven and repeatable problem-solving protocol that any business or profession can employ to achieve extraordinary results
