Design Thinking and Business

“Tweak? Leap? What does design thinking demand?” was a conference hosted by the College of Design and sponsored by Larsen. Held at the Carlson School of Management, it explored the answers to questions in the context of design and business education. Speakers for the day included global creatives from Knowmads (Amsterdam), KaosPilots (Aarhus, Denmark), and 4FRONT (Minneapolis/St. Paul). John Foley, Executive Director of 4FRONT, spoke about innovative geographic centers, the potential for the Twin Cities, and the imperative to foster creative community. Participants envisioned inspired futures for a creative Twin Cities in a hands-on design thinking workshop.
