They explored how designers can recognize and connect with their audiences. As society evolves and so does people, design has to adapt to the changes, tendencies and needs of the actual consumers, as well to their environment, taking in special consideration sustainability.

The designer walk the assistants through the function and the mission of design as an ed­ucative process, in constant learning about why design should be innovative and connected to its potential audience.
