Designing Solutions for the 21st Century

Thinking about the wider picture is hard but we love it.

Our three hour workshop gives you an introduction to what's involved and how you can practice it. We call it "Designing Solutions For The 21st Century".

We can also run this stimulating workshop in-house for your team or organisation. Contact us to discuss the options.

Our courses  are set up to explore Dorenda Britten Ltd’s Design Principles and how you can apply them.

Anyone who has an interest in improving the outcome of the products, services and systems they are developing.

Highly recommended for anyone interested in creating real value for real people, and a different approach to products and services.

What will you come away with?

Participation in this workshop is guaranteed to increase your interest in the things that surround us - whether it be physical or digital products, systems or services.

You will explore the principles that form the basis of great design outcomes. You will uncover the value of involving diverse minds in the creation process and the effective management of differing perspectives. You will be equipped to identify high quality ideas that will meet real human needs now and in the future, that diminish social and environmental impact.

The success or value of any product or service depends on a finite number of critical factors. Each of these can be glaringly obvious or completely invisible in different situations. Every successful offering addresses them all, whether they know it or not.

This workshop is aimed at a broad audience to encourage diversity of input and maximise the networking potential. We believe New Zealand has significant unrealised opportunities to create a lasting and authentic New Zealand brand that your business can leverage.
