SUSAN WHITELAW - Edinburgh, Scotland

It does exactly what it say and helps you to understand how many designers come up with unique ideas. I use to design without thinking and came up with ideas that all look the same. Nothing stood out and I wasn’t sure if they actually worked. Now I have the right way to design and this creative thinking short course helped me to achieve this.
