This talk will explore and establish how creativity, disruption, and the profound impact we, as designers, can wield in shaping the world around us. We will understand and navigate a landscape where design is more than aesthetics – but one where we see design more as a solution, a catalyst, and a powerful tool that is capable of changing the world as we know it. The earlier we are familiar with each of our innate and unique abilities as designers, the faster we can wear our superhero capes, influencing perceptions, disrupting norms, and paving the way for meaningful change through creative and innovative designs. Major Learning Points: 1. The convergence – Creativity, disruption, and impact 2. Navigating Disruption with Purpose 3. The ‘Human’ factor in Design 4. Design Ethos and Social Responsibility Case Studies: The Tampon Book KFC Malaysia’s “The Dot” campaign
