Subjects - DT
DT is about designing and making 'something' for 'somebody' for 'some purpose.' Designers do this by using their creativity and imagination to explore, design, make and evaluate a range of exciting products.
"Design is a funny word. Some people think design means how it looks. But of course, if you look deeper, it's really how it works." - Steve Jobs
