Today we did a study task focusing in on design thinking, process and conceptual development. We were presented with a one day brief which we had to complete within the space of an hour and a half. The brief was basically asking us to think of a way of promoting insects as a viable, sustainable and healthy alternative source of protein.
The whole purpose of the study task was to get us thinking about wider ways to approach a brief rather than just falling back on reliable design processes and tried and tested methods. I found this very useful, as it required me to step out of my comfort zone in terms of tackling and unpicking a brief.
