Chaos to Clarity

Finding Order in a Disorganized World

Spring 2016
May 14 & 15, 2:00 – 6:00pm
Studio 1

Synthesis is often considered the hardest part of the design process. It conjures visions of teams locked in rooms, banging their heads against a wall, and trying to get to the bigger idea. There are plenty of tools and methods that go into synthesis, but what are the underlying skills that make someone really great at it?

The workshop is all about building your organization muscles. You’ll practice organizing all sorts of information and objects, so when the time comes for synthesis, you’ll be able to dive right in and start making meaning from the chaos.
