Industrial Design and Occupational Therapy students worked collaboratively on a semester long project. After teams are selected, OT students brainstormed to provide a brief for the symptoms of a visionary patient to ID students. First step of ID students was empathizing the issues of the visionary patient and then finding a solution to overcome those problems by ideation, design development and testing processes. Results were brilliant, collaboration with OT will continue in following semesters.
Yet another successful event organized by Michael Graves College; Thinking Creatively Charrette and Conference! This year's theme was PTSD (Post Traumatic Syndrome Disorder). Event started with a detailed info session including speakers from Gruskin Group, Psychiatrists, and a veteran who launched a non profit organization to help other veterans with PTSD. A building site development for veterans with PTSD from master plan to branding was the design brief. Efecem's team got an honorable mention.
