"Design & Thinking" movie screening

Ratu Lewis

Design and Thinking Poster“Design thinking” it’s not really a new concept but rather an undiscovered one. It has already sparked debates in the design industry, the corporate world, and even in social change, but has yet to catch fire in the rest of the world.

This is what young and ambitious Muris Media thought when they set out to film “Design & Thinking,” a documentary to explore this “movement.”

The 74min feature documentary was filmed by Taipei Design Center U.S. Director Mu-Ming Tsai who has great interest in the crossroad of design and filmmaking. Being inspired by a design thinking mantra “thinking by doing,” Tsai started filming the 31 interviews featured in the documentary right away. This documentary grabs entrepreneurs, designers, social change-makers and unlikely individuals to discuss the challenge of creative business and collaboration in the 21st century. Instead of being a tribute to the beauty of design, the film aims to bring forward the ambiguity, conflicts, and the messy process of how not just designers, but also creative people, think and do things.

So how do you see this film? Well lucky for us the Sunshine Coast Council in collaboration with Analogue/Digital has set up a special screening of this provocative film this Thursday, 20 September at the Birch Caroll & Coyle, Sunshine Plaza. This is part of the Creative Industries focus 2012 to promote and invigorate creative industry events on the Sunshine Coast. Following the screening will be a panel discussion featuring prominent Queensland designers and thinkers; including Tanja Hall (JOLT), Ben Johnston (Josephmark), Adam Blake (Creative Industries Innovation Centre) and Timothy Hill (Donovan Hill). And to make things even better, the night will conclude with a networking event at local venue Sol Bar (and we know just how much you guys love networking!).

You guys don’t want to miss out on watching this stimulating and thought provoking movie.
