Overview

Unisinos Graduate Program in Design uses the perspective of strategy to investigate the design method. The emphasis on Strategic Design prioritizes the study of strategies developed by Design to drive the design action and, above all, the organizational action towards innovation and sustainability.

These strategies are developed by Design in a process that involves all of its performance ecosystem: the organizational environment (design agencies, companies, and other organizations), market, society, and environment. Thus, the design process is considered and developed in the scope of multiple relations established in the design action, with relevant methodological implications. The Strategic Design focus is displaced from the design process in itself for the set of relations these ecosystems develop among themselves.

Emphasis: Strategic Design

The Strategic Design focus is characterized by studying the strategies developed by Design to guide design action and, above all, organizational action towards innovation and sustainability. These strategies are elaborated by Design in a process that involves its entire operating ecosystem: the organizational environment (design offices, companies and other organizations), the market, society and the environment. Here, the design process is considered and developed in the context of the multiple relationships established in the project action: the focus moves from the design process itself to the set of relationships that these ecosystems develop among themselves.
