FIELD OF DESIGN.

What is a Field of Design?

People having healthy meal together at the restaurant

INSECTS FOR MASSES

How should we add the insects in the products? How should the products be packed and marketed, so that the masses will overcome their prejudice and understand what a great nutrient we actually have at our hands?

game

GAME DESIGN

Since the beginning of time, people have found joy in competing against each other and themselves. What could be the next big hit in the gaming industry? Instead of just waiting around to see what happens, would you like to be building it?

healthcare

HACK THE HEALTHCARE

How could the whole healthcare experience be more tailormade to fit each client’s needs better, even the ones that aren’t among the people being taken care of?

job

HACK THE JOB

Meet Mark. Until yesterday Mark was working for a large corporation, but he lost his job out of nowhere. Mark doesn’t really know what his next steps are. How would you hack the job for Mark?

academic

REIMAGINING
ACADEMIC SPACE

Could the contradiction be solved using digital technology and fostering new nodes of collective activity within the buildings, from education to mobility and work spaces and living environments?

What does ‘Field of Design’ mean?

Having an event like Dash requires challenges. Each of our Fields of Design has a different challenge for the teams to tackle. The problem-first approach in our FoDs forces our teams to discover and define the user’s problem and based on that definition develop a creative solution to it. Our FoDs range from tackling today’s problems with recruitment to discovering new ways to utilize academic spaces.
