What did you learn when developing the deliverables in response to the design brief?

The world is getting smaller; we are getting more connected; it is imperative that we better understand and learn from each other as global citizens.

Empathy is the capacity to understand or feel what another person is experiencing from within the other person's frame of reference, i.e., the capacity to place oneself in another's position.

The design brief itself is not an actual work about art. Experts and students do not require to spend hours making it look pretty as Nobody will see it apart from the design team as well the client. Therefore, save creativity as well time for the design of the project.
