What is design?
"From the spoon to the city" design is everywhere.
Design is what happens when people use creativity to solve problems.
Computers and coffee cups, skyscrapers and socks. Everything not made by nature, has been designed.

Natsai Audrey Chieza

There has never been a better time to become a designer.
The planet needs design solutions to help tackle the climate crisis.
We need a more diverse mix of people designing to represent the society we live in. Many every day designs such as crash test dummies or non-touch hand dryers were not designed with women or people of colour in mind and this needs to change.
