"Designing beyond the borders"
Graduate degree in Design with research presented as a case study in IDEO's Human-Centered Design Toolkit. By day, I'm a design researcher. By all other accounts, I'm a secret agent with a passion to see design reach beyond my border.
Maker Faire happens in many cities and is an interactive and educational event that offers a hands-on experience for participants and attendees. How could something like this be applied to encourage youth to acquire skills and information?
Jamie Oliver's Fifteen is a restaurant that uses the magic of food to give unemployed young people a chance to have a better future. The apprenticeship model encourages training, personal development, work experience and college work.
Emily Pilloton brought impactful design to people via a "roadshow" experience, which allowed people to connect with design in new and accessible ways. How might this idea create awareness and encourage accessibility in the voting/election process?
Love this, Ashley. I especially like the idea of a mentor who had no sons or daughters but could "adopt" a young person to bring to work. And think about those young people who have no parent that is able to support this idea but had a desire to go to work with a professional? Shadowing is such a powerful experience.
