Design is moving towards an overly scientific approach where its success is measured by the immediate reception of people and businesses, and its creativity is restricted by the availability of technology. Yet designing for the evolving future requires imagination, introspection, and a little bit of absurdity. Through the articulation and expression of their own voices, designers should create pivots in transitional times to connect and empower people, and with renewed optimism, present alternative ways of perceiving the world to inspire self-reflection, meaningful conversations and social interactions. Only by embracing design’s expressive nature and their inherent desire to innovate can designers really shape culture and propel growth in the society.
