Feedback from Design Central Team
It was great to meet everyone involved with the class and especially great to start getting our heads wrapped around this opportunity in social innovation. What’s so incredible to think about is that in this program, you hold the potential to invigorate the world with fresh thinking, sustainable ground-breakers, and market shifting ideas that could be noticed world-wide!!!! Bringing your creative energy and clear perspective could make the difference from what has been done in the past to a new level of excitement that not only solves needs better than ever, does it in an amazingly engaging way, and at reasonably low cost. We are excited to see the problem identification and ideas that individuals from various backgrounds will come to find. This is an awesome opportunity to work with people who are able to bring an understanding and perspective to the table that we might overlook in our own little bubble. In addition, it will be especially interesting to see problems begin to emerge that our prior stereotypes or notions may have discounted. Having the liberty to go out and meet people who open their lives up to us will prove to be very telling if we keep our eyes open! We left North Carolina inspired by the program NCSU has built. Both students and faculty seem to have established a wonderful cross-disciplinary atmosphere that can be a breeding ground for forward thinking and truly innovative ideas. Build upon this energy and take advantage of the resources before you. This is a quote by Jamie Lerner, “Creativity starts when you cut a zero from your budget”. We look forward to seeing everyone’s creative solutions that work within the given parameters and push conventional thinking!
