Design & Thinking and panel discussion

The documentary Design & Thinking will screen followed by a panel discussion with urbanist and designer Yen Trinh, creative agent Lindy Johnson and Tanja Hall, Queensland president of Australian Graphic Design Association, facilitated by architect Shane Thompson.

Design & Thinking asks: How do we fully engage organizations to think about the changing landscape of business, culture and society? Inspired by design thinking, the documentary looks at what businessmen, designers, social change-makers and other individuals have in common when facing the twenty-first century. What is design thinking? How is it applied in business models? How are people changing the world with their own creative minds? It is a call to the conventional minds to change and collaborate.

The screening marks the launch of the State Library of Queensland’s Asia Pacific Design Library lecture series, which looks at what inspires designers beyond their day jobs. The fortnightly talk series invites a diverse range of local and international design practitioners and creative thinkers to share details of their ‘side projects’ and the influence it has on their day-to-day work.
