Design: Did we get where we wanted to? And now?
Design as a discipline has changed radically in recent years, both abroad and in Brazil. In addition to being fundamental for the conception of new products, brands and services, it has been positioning itself as a fundamental strategic activity linked – also – to business, reaching a level of vital importance for corporations, a position long sought after by the entire category. However, this new place requires new skills, visions and entrepreneurial behavior, which was not always the focus of designers. How to deal with this new and challenging scenario? That’s what we’re going to discuss on this schedule.
