Hi I'm Anuja Selvaraju, a graduate student at Academy of Art. I'm currently conducting academic research that focuses on Effective Creative Thinking as a part of my Graphic Design thesis development. This survey would help me define and reframe problem statement for my thesis and also to design effective deliverables.
Focus: Investigating the problems in understanding, application and accessibility of Design thinking from academic and commercial perspectives. The aim is to help understand the best practices and to align Design to the face paced competitive business world, vice a versa.

Hi all!

Sorry I've been offline the last few days. From Monday till one hour ago I've been involved in the San Francisco module of the international master on intrapreneurship and open innovation I'm attending. Great inspiration meeting entrepreneurs from the Bay Area and visiting powerful places like the Hub SoMa, Pier38... and companies like: Ideo, BitTorrent, Opinno, Innovalley, Disney mobile,...


11:00am at Cafe Flor looks great to me.


I hope I can make it tomorrow with some of my master-mates.


Thanks for arranging the meeting!!!

Hi Peter, thanks for replying. Haven't heard from Iñigo as of yet. Let's still plan to meet, say Sunday, the 17th, and I would like to propose an earlier time. How about 11am, and hopefully Iñigo can join us; or if he's better with the afternoon time, let's plan for that.


Hope all is well.

I agree, meetup sounds like a great idea. Either day on the weekend of the 16th would work for me.

Hi unthinkers from San Francisco,


My name is Iñigo Blanco I am an enthusiastic environmental sciences graduate with work experience in Spain, England and Germany in social innovation, strategic creativity, service design, design thinking, social ecology, communication, environmental management and fauna and flora conservation. I am now working for the University of Mondragon in the Basque Country (Spain) as lecturer (Design Thinking) and researcher (Hybrid learning ecosystems for social innovation). I'm also guiding the Hub Gipuzkoa project.


The point is that next week I am visiting San Francisco to attend a module of an international Master on Intrapreneurship and Open Innovation I am coursing... and I will love to know more about the Design Thinking scene in the city and it would be great if we can spend some time together.

I know we will be working at Hub SoMa from the 11th to the 16th. I will be working there with the Mondragon Team Academy crew from the Mondragon University, the LEINN (Leadership and Innovative entrepreneurship Degree students) students and my mates from the MINN (International Executive Master on Intrapreneurship and Open Innovation).

If you are interested in the connection, we will find the way to make it happend :-) I'll be in SF from the 4th to the 25th of April.

You can find more info about my Learning Journey to San Francisco here:

Looking forward to a reply from you, do not hesitate to contact me for further info. I'm really excited about this connection and the opportunity of meeting and cocreating with you.

Thank you very much for your attention in advance.

Warm greetings from sunny Bilbao :-)

Crowd-sourcing is most certainly a big issue here in the US within the graphic design community; and its beginning to be seen in other design fields here as well. I wonder if it is a much of an issue in other lands.
