Introduction Design is form and function. But it is also art and passion, creativity and emotion, logic and method with the exact proportion of innovation. Design thinking is all this and more: originality is supported by objectives. It´s difference anchored in results. It´s to think before act. Design thinking is to live, drink and breathe design, without ever losing sight of the connection between creation and reason, methodology and argumentation. It's thinking outside of the box, being inside of it. And even though for many that's not saying anything, we say: it’s the anything that says everything.
