Kirsten selected to participate in IDEO Munich Make-A-Thon
August 2, 2013
Kirsten from Out Of Office recently got selected and invited to participate in a 2 day workshop in Munchen: the IDEO Make-a-Thon 2013.
IDEO (pronounced “eye-dee-oh”) is an award-winning global design firm that takes a human-centered, design-based approach to helping organizations in the public and private sectors innovate and grow. A great opportunity to connect and learn!
In this multidiscplinary weekend, IDEO invited not just software engineers and digital designers, but also industrial designers, architects, and problem solvers from different backgrounds. Inspired by IDEO’s own maker culture, the DIY community at Maker Faire, and Silicon Valley hackathons, they decided to experiment with the concept and called this prototype event a “Make-a-thon.
Result were two fun and intense days of making, as we craft, hack, and build human-centered design solutions to real world challenges, working alongside IDEO designers from various disciplines. An inspiring weekend of meeting of great minds and new innovation!
