Glimmer: The Power of Design Thinking
Can design thinking make you a happier? A recently published book by author Warren Berger says it can.
Fast Company reports that a new book by Warren Berger, Glimmer, poses that basic design strategies can be adapted to everyday issues – at global, social, business and even personal levels. The book’s title captures that moment when one arrives at a new solution to an old problem, and strives to learn how designers solve everyday problems and create alternative solutions.
In collaboration with top designers, Berger examines the ways in which they approach problems, utilize unique tools and techniques, and ultimately arrive at solutions. The ensuing insights captured are actionable and sometimes counter-intuitive design principles such as ask stupid questions; make hope visible; work the metaphor; embrace constraints; and begin anywhere. He elaborates how these can be implemented in business and personal life, and on how “transformation” design is being used to inject fresh creativity into companies globally (and can be used individually).
