WHAT THEY HAVE TO SAY
“ The program’s needs-driven approach (with a target group of inner city youth) shows terrific evidence of the power of design and design thinking to address fundamental life lessons and provide “transferable skills” that can help youth face their future with confidence. Collaboration, civic action and creative problem solving are celebrated and turned into key motivating factors in the first year of this exciting program."

" For those who were not lucky enough to be born with a 'design' brain, Kris really breaks down an actionable method of incorporating design-process thinking and problem-solving techniques. While her focus is non-profit and social good, her class is absolutely valuable for anyone looking to learn to think in an innovative way to solve for various challenges in their work. "
Leighann Farrelly, Community development manager at Skillshare
“ After watching the Mobile Soup Kitchen in action, TYTHEdesign worked with a team of volunteers to redesign the interior space of the MSK. TYTHEdesign created new tools to reduce the inefficiencies at the service window. The volunteers and staff became more effective, less frustrated and were able to dramatically reduce the time needed to serve each client."

“ I am new to the concept of design thinking, and decided to take the class, because I am currently involved in a start-up social venture. I definitely walked away with very relevant and useful information, and am even more interested to learn more about design thinking techniques while in pursuit of this start-up organization."
Laresha Franks, attendee of the Design Thinking Workshop
“I give Kristina my highest endorsement -- she both inspired me to look at a familiar problem in a a new way, and in a brief 1.5 hours equipped me with tools and techniques that I plan to put into action immediately. Her interactive teaching style is highly conducive to learning! "
