They work with real-world constraints on a range of industry briefs with the intent of developing empathy for various stakeholders and the context within which a problem arises. Students gain an understanding of the 'new practices' of design, including the role of digital in improving service delivery, using data to enhance experiences and delivery and innovative design research practices.
