Assignment: Let's Start Talking About Design

As you saw in the Wonderful World of Design video (or if you didn’t see it, watch it now), design touches every part of your life, sometimes in ways you might not even notice.  Find the cards in your activity kit and follow the instructions to take a closer look at the thoughtful design of some everyday objects.  After discussing them, consider some frustrating examples of design you encounter in your life.  Upload your reflections on the thoughtful designs as well as your design challenge list (there is a template in the Appendix you can use, if you like).  Don’t forget to identify which problem you’ll use for your DT Philly project.  Earn five bonus points by including original photos (pictures taken by you) that depict the problem you chose.
