The Design Gym is a creative agency that empowers people inside of organizations to break things, make things, and create dramatically better ways to work.
We run a wide variety of classes and workshops on creativity, collaboration, and innovation. We connect our diverse community of learners with real companies to help them tackle their toughest challenges.
This was a great introduction to design thinking. Really hands-on focused workshop where you get to practice the steps rather than just learning the theory. These types of exercises can typically be nerve wracking to do with strangers, but our instructor, Tim, not only explained the concepts well but made everyone feel really comfortable. Obviously you won’t master design thinking in these three hours, but thought this was a great place to start.
Great participatory class! The design thinking process was well articulated. I left with some tools to use for design thinking and a clear understanding of its uses. I thought the class was informative, fun and well paced.
This class offered a very basic overview of facilitation. I would have liked more hands-on practice and a more in-depth overview of specific tools that can be used in different situations.
This was an amazing day. Learned a ton about the fundamentals of facilitation. I left feeling inspired and empowered to have more productive meetings and trainings.
Interactive format; various group and solo exercises to give practical examples. A good introduction to a problem-solving framework. As an art director I was already familiar with the process, but it was still helpful to see the process formalized. Oh and they had beer.
I enjoyed the concepts explored but felt that anyone with any brainstorming experience may do better to join the day long training. This is too cursory.
Loved the class!! Great, very knowledgeable Instructor with a lot of spirit and enthusiasm. I highly recommend this Class and Teacher to anyone interested in Creativity and Innovation, particularly within a business environment. Fabulous experience!!
Great, dynamic and fun class! Having come from a design education background, it was the perfect refresher course on brainstorming and design thinking. The instructor Reiley was very knowledgeable and fun -- will definitely look into more courses at the Design Gym!
It was a great intro - I'll definitely look into taking more classes with The Design Gym in the future.
