Design & Thinking Documentary + Discussion with Producers Yu Hsiu Yang & Melissa Huang.

Carbon Five, in conjunction with Taipei Design Center, is proud to host a San Francisco screening of Design & Thinking.

By now you've likely heard the term "Design Thinking" being bandied about in various ways throughout disparate disciplines; yet the term is still ambiguous. What exactly is "Design Thinking?"

The documentary Design & Thinking addresses this very question by courting the insight of designers, businessmen, professors, and social change-makers. Interviewees stem from Ideo, Standford's, AIGA, Mission Bicycle, and Metropolis Magazine to name just a few. Taken together, their criticism—both pro and con— of the burgeoning practice helps situate it theoretically and pragmatically. Is design thinking a novel and useful methodology applicable across diverse problem sets, or, rather, is it just a newly coined buzzword and an empty concept?

Carbon Five invites you to ponder such questions with us, your peers, and the film's producer Yu Hsiu Yang, who will graciously be holding a Q&A session after the film.
