We're re-designing education.

Founded in 2012, the Design Thinking Asia network was created to nurture Design ecosystems across Asia, with a particular focus on emerging markets.

Using the concept of Design Thinking as a rallying point, the network incorporates and focuses on many of the associated Design-led disciplines such as User Experience and Service Design. This allows the network to scale in focus based on each cities' appetite for - and maturity with - Design.

Presently containing over 2,000 members across Asia, Design Thinking Asia achieves this through training, community building events, and incubation of Design-led businesses across the region.

Our Mission

Our mission is to help grow Design communities across Asia with local relevance and immediate impact. We want Design to be a useful tool for helping solve complex problems in some of the most dynamic regions in the world. We want to help identify and nurture Design leaders in each community, and equip them with the tools to help grow Design in their community.
