  10. Researching solutions

  11. every problem we solve through design is unique

  12. similarities

  13. when we’re researching solutions through the experience and ideas of

    others, it’s like being back in art lessons again
  14. None
  15. the answers can’t all come from one place

  16. Picasso The Lovers, 1923

  17. Evolving resources

  18. gaining confidence

  19. the way we researched evolved

  20. conscious decisions

  21. conscious research

  22. saving the details

  23. the more experience, the greater the osmosis

  24. The exceptions

  25. None
  26. I find myself needing to learn again

  27. this time around

  28. Design as a practice and process stays constant

  29. We’ll always be able to apply skills of seeing, solving

    problems and making decisions
  30. We need to be smart about how we learn

  31. Ensure we don’t fall back on the work of others

    when we should be innovating for ourselves
