Design Thinking

Design Thinking with Courtney Kyle and Tim Brazier




Courtney Kyle: Art Talk

How to think like an artist and practice creativity to help you design and build better, smarter technology.

Courtney is an artist and UX designer working on enterprise solutions for the construction industry at Autodesk. She is passionate about the intersection of art and technology and using creative principles to drive human-centred design.

We are delighted to have Courtney speak about design thinking and product design with a humanistic slant, drawing on creative practices and naturalistic principles to guide human-centred design.

Tim Brazier: What Design Thinking really looks like


Tim is a designer with over 8 years experience co-designing digital products and services. He is the founder of Sheffield Design School, specialising in working with non-profit organisations to improve the impact of their services, both digital and physical.

Tim will talk about his experience of discovering Design Thinking and what it looks like in practice – taking the mystery and exclusivity out of it and showing examples of how it can be applied to any project or problem, no matter how big or small.
