Campus Squad: our team members in action!

Welcome to our first post!

We are pleased to share with the world our journey into Digital Society School — DSS.
Sharing is the key to success! When we share an idea with 3 different people, they get to hear it once and we get to hear it 3 times, helping us to be better prepared for the future.

Future?

Yes, it is all about the future! We are interns from DSS and our mission is to design a sustainable and desirable future. Do you want to be ahead of your time? Awesome, join us in this adventure!

First things first!

Last February, our team started working together in a design challenge from ING Bank, but before providing you with more details about our goals and deliverables, let us introduce you to our team members, our superpowers and wishes. From the left to the right:

Houston, we have a definition, but wait…

Based on our research, our team ended up in a definition of connection, but, taking into account the human-centred-design, we understood that it is important to bring the end-users' perspective in order to merge our knowledge to set in place a common ground for the project.
