The 'Design for Creatives' squad is aimed at democratizing creative processes by removing barriers to the participation of stakeholders, users and other parties in creative processes.
The projects aimed at the development of tools and methods that support designers, crowdsourcing for creative processes and enhanced online collaboration for design and supporting creativity in other areas (such as schools and education in general).
The squad collaborated with clients like Design2Gather.com, Crowd.site, Hue Labs from Philips Lighting, Medical Image Analysis group TU/e and CrowdsourcingWeek.com.
TU/e DEPARTMENT of INDUSTRIAL DESIGN
At the department of Industrial Design we are shaping a new discipline: designing and creating intelligent systems, products and related services. We combine cutting edge research in several domains to educate a new type of engineer. Our industrial designers create connected solutions, combining products and services to suit individual needs. They can work with all stakeholders, customers and producers alike, who are not only involved, but are also essential contributors to the future sustainability of our world. Their role will be to mediate the developments in technology, the needs of people (culture & society) and the responsibility for properly using the power of ideas and values.
I supported the second year, third year(final year) and Master's students of the Design for Creatives Squad with the process and strategies to infuse research into the ideation and make interpretations that inform design directions.
I would like to thank Jean-Bernard Martens for his initiative and invaluable support.
