This week, Daniel Hewett, the executive director of research at RISD, came in for a discussion and critique of the Dojees’ first outlines for their semester long innovation projects. 


Ranging from a proposal to instill connection back into music, to the need for better mattresses, every Dojee, the 5 mentors, and Hewett discussed every project at length and gave constructive pointers. 

A goal without a plan is just a wish.

This discussion questioned pre conceived notions and the inclination to design a product prior to knowing your topic inside out.
