Making Sense of Next Design Frontiers

This month and next we are republishing some materials from the Humantific Archives related to early views into the subject of rethinking design thinking, the value of strategic design, rethinking design education, etc.

This interview with GK VanPatter CoFounder of Humantific and NextDesign Leadership Network was first published in 2005.

Much of what is discussed here remains very relevent in the marketplace today and we continue to see interest rise around better understanding what Next Design Thinking, Strategic Design Thinking, The OTHER Design Thinking is today.

Over the course of more than a decade Humantifc has created and shared considerable material on this subject.
