5 alternative approaches to design thinking

As a designer, senior teaching fellow and head of product design at the University of Sussex, I have a long history of educating and guiding designers to be more creative, inventive and to unleash the power of the mind and, using this experience, I have developed a range of unique approaches to design thinking. 

Designing involves an inward and outward journey of awareness. My research is embodied design, which taps into the inward journey. It investigates learning and creativity through self-discovery techniques and designers can use these techniques to tap into the emotional experiences invoked by the design problem they are trying to solve.
