Dhaka Diaries


We had the opportunity to spend a week in Dhaka late last year. We were invited by Start Up Week Dhaka and GrameenPhone to lead a week long design sprint. The focus was social innovation and we had the opportunity to work closely with some fantastic start-ups - education, travel, logistics and food. 

More, we were left inspired by the chaos and colour on the streets of Dhaka. From Louis Kahn architecture to bright rickshaws, and dhakai sarees to steamed balls of pink aubergine - Dhaka left us excited and filled with ideas on urban design issues. More to come....  

Singapore Design Week

Come join us at the National Design Centre on March 6th. Heist will be running a workshop on design sprints. We will talk about looking for sharp insights, using them to develop creative concepts and then quickly test them using rapid prototyping. We will use a series of ideation exercises and design thinking tools to quickly take us from insights to concepts we can test.

When: 6th March 2017 / 9:30 AM - 12 PM 

Where: National Design Centre, Auditorium
