This summer Doberman will host six brilliant students in the Summer Design Office – “Sommardesignkontoret” – and support them in their effort to solve two complex design challenges during seven weeks. The initiative is arranged as an annual event by the The Swedish Industrial Design Foundation, SVID, and is now arranged in Stockholm for the first time.
Doberman will host, coach and steer the students as they grapple two challenging briefs on mental health. In an environment where quantified self and data-driven motivation have become a foundation for physical health, how can design influence mental well-being and catch those susceptible before it becomes too late?
These next 7 weeks will follow a user-centered process, listening to and building empathy for teenagers and employees as the students address the key questions put forward from their clients; Handisam and Psynk.
We will be sure to keep you updated as things progress.
Let the challenges begin!
