An Enthusiast On a Mission To Transform The Perspective Of Creativity And Design

The Author and Physician, Edward de Bono has well-quoted, “There is no doubt that creativity is the most important human resource of all. Without creativity, there would be no progress and we would be forever repeating the same pattern.” When we think about Creativity, the first thing that strikes our mind is Design. Design is considered a synonym for creativity & art, and the designer is the artist.
