We started Lime Design because we were passionate about creating exceptional learning experiences so that when people left our workshops, they truly understood design thinking and could apply what they learned in their work and in their life. We believe that experiential learning is the best way to do this work, because design thinking is not something you can simply read about. You have to experience it. We are continually perfecting our craft — prototyping new activities, brainstorming ideas, and getting user feedback. We believe that design thinking is more than following a set of process steps. The mindsets matter. That means challenging assumptions, asking questions, observing keenly, taking action, building to think and failing forward. We want people to leave our workshops with a sense of joy, satisfaction, and commitment and the confidence to immediately apply what they have learned.
