(Online)Design Futures: Speculative Design for Business




The Design Futures methodology is based on speculative design.

Speculative design has been gaining attention in Japan in recent years as a design that creates questions, and Design Futures is positioned as a speculative design for business applications.

Using Design Futures' unique process of applying speculative design to business, we will create future lifestyles and technologies, identify completely new opportunity areas, and build future scenarios. Among the various ways to explore insights and apply them to scenarios, this time the exercise will focus on the Future Wheel.

Participants can be from any type of business or industry. This session will be useful for anyone who is involved in creating the future of business.
