Last month, a one day design-thinking workshop was hosted by me at the office. It lasts about one hour and a half, a relaxed atmosphere, pairing up with some different kinds of red wine. I was pleased to see everyone enjoying, feeling comfortable while learning design thinking with me in this workshop.

our process and solutions

Talking with Irune and her team is one of the best thing to conduct a guerrilla research under a limited time-frame in this hackathon.
