You will get to dive into human minds, to uncover secrets on how to build more intuitive products. What is the bigger picture? How are these different pieces of puzzles working together to make the whole work? How do we join the dots? Voila! Something very useful or delightful will come out of this inquisitive journey! And you get to be the wide eyed child always!

3. Being a Jack of all Trades is a good thing in this field

Gone are the days when we needed to master one thing. Innovative solutions require diverse skill sets. When we bring skills from Design, Entrepreneurship, Technology and Humanities together, wonders happen!
