Heather Sarkissian, a Corporate Innovation Manager at DAP, visited students in their Relationship of Design and Business class last week.

Some challenging questions were about corporations creating innovative solutions, the role of failure in design, and importance of end user research in design.

Above is an example of the design exercises we did that day before she arrived.
