Design thinking is what takes us from where we are now, to where we want to be. It is the unifying process that stands above every other design process. Design is broken down into disciplines, or verticals—graphic design, product, and so forth. And going across those verticals are things that are universal and horizontal—such as business, education, and so forth. When you weave the verticals and the horizontals, you get design thinking. It’s weaving the threads of these design disciplines with the practical world that is surrounding us.
