DESIGN FOR SOCIAL IMPACT-TALK

Design for social impact is a long term process achieved through extensive observation, feedback and assessment over the production of an item.

Feedback does not only form a critical requirement of design for social impact. It is fact the user’s experience and response to what the designer thinks has been accomplished. Design for social impact provides a methodology for examining structural and systems-based design thinking, and solutions-based design making.

These were the key take away points in a mentorship talk by Goodie Odhiambo to the third and forth Year design students.

A  detail Presentation of The ARTESAN GATEWAY Design Retail challenge was explained to the students. A 2rd Year Bachelor in Interior Design student, Cella Were, that participated in the challenge last year was  presented with a certificate. 

Goodie was accompanied by a Financial Literacy training team from Equity Bank and a Storytelling Artist John Mukeni Namai-Titi. The student participants got links to various opportunities for internship.
