PLAY - the design way
The ability of playfulness to inform many, if not all, design processes and outcomes is the driving principle of DesignCamp2018 at Design School Kolding. It recognises how open-ended and playful methods can drive idea development and strategic design potential.

Development of solutions to reduce medication errors in elderly care considering functional and emotional aspects.
