Design your Project

During the project design phase, the projects aims, envisioned outcomes, and methodology is developed. The design phase is an important phase for every project, as it sets foundation for everything else. There are many opportunities to include creative approaches during this project phase, both to make the design process more creative and come up with more creative ideas, and to set the stage for creative project implementation.

In this section, you can find ressources to help you design more creative projects – and to design projects more creatively. The materials include presentations about human centered design and design thinking, a selection of useful online courses, videos and other ressources. Use our learning fches to get a quick overview over methods you can try out in your project designs, or follow the links for additional information.
