A design is a blueprint or specifications for the structure or method of the execution of some act or procedure, or the product of that blueprint or specifications, or the intended result of that blueprint or specifications. The word ‘design’ as used in this context should mean the constructive arrangement of parts according to the intention of the designer, the manner of putting together parts according to a definite blueprint or specifications, or the manner in which parts are interconnected according to the intended purpose of the creation. Design may also be used in connection with the expression, ‘to prepare for designing’, or ‘to design’, and ‘to build’ (and ‘to assemble’).
Designers are those who solve problems. Designing helps us to solve problems. Designers help us to think of new and better ways of doing things, and they help us to realize our potential as designers and inventors. Through design thinking we can discover the best possible forms of connection and expression of our creative energy, and learn to make known our most attractive and compelling visions to the world.
Design Thinking is a new scientific approach to problem solving. In this scientific approach designers are regarded as scientists, instead of mere consumers, who need to make good use of technology to make things better, rather than merely consumers, who need to buy the things they want in order to make things better. Design Thinking helps us to think of new and better ways of doing things, and it helps us to realize our potential as designers and inventors. Design Thinking is therefore essential for sustainable innovation and successful implementation.
