In short, this book is the active agent that can be used to theorise, restructure and overcome challenges we face on a daily basis. Play Crafted both for experts in Design Thinking and for those just getting started, Design, Play, Change will explain the theory behind designing as well as demonstrate how to think, act, create and feel like a designer.
