Economic crisis and Design opportunities
For every crisis, there are five steps to go through until we are out of it, one of those is « the rebellion » phase. This step is when people realize that, to overcome the crisis, they must try to do something.
This is a very prolific time during which everybody tries his or her best to react. Proposing concrete alternative solutions becomes necessary and useful.
The Design world is particularly excited during this phase because it is the time to make the necessary changes to move on better basis. So, to the question: is the economic crisis a Design opportunity? My answer is yes!
