What is design? In an Imagine More blog post earlier this year, we discussed the definitions of “design” that we had encountered throughout the World Design Capital 2014 activities that we had visited. We also added our own definitions, which have been a big part of our inspiration for creating Youth Design Studio.
Now that YDS is up and running, we can add a third perspective: our students! On the first day of class, we asked all of them to write down their answer to the question: What is Design? Here are some of the incredible responses we received from one class, high school learners at Ikamva Youth Makhaza. We hope they get you thinking about design, what it means, and how it can be a part of your life, no matter who you are!
