Designers must go beyond design; this presentation will illustrate this, by reflecting on how design has changed and through the design research undertaken at ImaginationLancaster. How do we influence and answer questions on; who makes design decisions, how we inform design decisions, how we engage with design decision-making, and how we help design futures. Finally, how do we educate the next generation of design leaders.
