In a world of complexity where the parameters are in constant flux, designers strive to develop useful tools and processes that enable them to identify precisely and quickly where in the system they are thinking from. This will entail having methods that can assist and support them in approaching the task at hand from different angles. Accordingly they learn to move deliberately between the different levels of cognition and creativity.
The MMM scale is a practical plug-in to the design process used to measure the intention and effort invested in the process and its outcome.
The MMM scale stands for Mechanical, Mental and Mindful.
The hands-on workshop will take the participants in an intense journey of design thinking where they will become aware and able to better ‘control’ these MMM states throughout the design process.
The subject of study will encompass a wide range of design disciplines: graphic, interior, fashion, product, and architecture, among others.
