Course Description

You'll be learning the design thinking innovation process.

Fulled by needs and values, you'll understand how to take a deeper look at what your audience are really after and generate ideas and solutions that are ultimately going to be more fulfilling.

To be a designer, you need to adopt the right mental attitude. These are the key things to consider.

Section 2: The Designer's Thinking Tools
Define the True Challenge

Sometimes we need to escape our own mindset in order to invent new solutions. Here's how to jump into a different mindset and find a new frame of reference.


A designer is able to look beyond what's in front of them and find alternative ways of achieving the desired outcome. This is all about harnessing the power of concepts.

Instructor Biography

Simon Jack, Creativity trainer, communicator and consultant

I enable people to unlock more of their creative potential, think more effectively and generate better ideas.

I also design communications that provoke thought and change behaviour.

I've always had an ability to see things in different ways and a passion to help others break free from restrictive thinking.

I now run a creative agency but was formally a big-business consultant specialising in strategy, growth, innovation and change. It's this mix of inventive thinking and real world experience that enables me to achieve success when working with others.
