About This Class

Looking to level up your design process? It all starts with design thinking.

More than a buzzword, design thinking is a set of tools and attitudes that can help you solve creative problems in a new way. Join UX designer and startup founder Andy Budd to learn how you can use this proven approach to break out of old thinking, act more strategically, and unlock creative solutions. Whether you’re designing a logo, building an app, or launching a creative business, this 50-minute class will provide you with the foundational knowledge to start applying design thinking to solve every type of creative problem.

You’ll learn:

  • The four steps of the design thinking process
  • Key attitudes and mindsets of successful designers
  • Real-world applications of design thinking techniques
  • Guided exercises to apply this approach to your own life

Plus, every lesson is packed with tips, techniques, and frameworks you can use to build an arsenal of tools you can draw from again and again.

Design thinking is the perfect foundation for all design: graphic, digital, UX, and beyond! Once you’ve mastered the simple art of design thinking you’ll never approach a design problem the same way again.
