MiHyun Kim: Design with Empathy and Curiosity

Publication Date



Design as a professional discipline has undergone a tremendous evolution in the last generation. It has transformed from a practice focused mainly on aesthetic style to one with a clear and explicit focus on users and their hopes, desires, challenges, and needs. By establishing empathy and curiosity with the user, designers can work toward outcomes that meet those needs more successfully. In this talk, designer, artist, and educator MiHyun Kim (Texas State University) considers the importance of human-centered projects and co-creation to innovative design solutions. She explains how this approach can address complex social issues and be applied to a broad range of disciplines, such as Interaction Design, Brand Design, Service Design, and even Landscape Design.
