Design Thinking on Acid

The way we solve problems is broken—we need to think beyond the techniques and assumptions of the past. Today’s big challenges like climate change, population growth, species extinction and new technologies emerge at an ever-accelerating rate. We struggle to find the imaginative answers we crave and when we do, biology and culture conspire to obstruct our progress. Find out how a new process for radical creativity called Thinknado! can conquer the status quo and help you do work that truly matters.
