Hi, I am Laura Simão. Welcome to my corner of the web. I am a student and a teacher, in this order. I study, teach, and write about the art and science of design, of thinking and of design thinking. I empower people to redesign their thinking and ask better questions. Answering is easy, asking is hard. Here we will learn how to redesign our thinking and ask better questions, together. Ultimately though, I want to help them acquire the superpowers of creativity, courage and insight.
I started this blog to get some interesting stories and ramblings in front of anyone who resonates with ReSet and its vision and anyone who will listen, really. In it, I will share stories and ramblings on the art and science of design, thinking and design thinking.
I am Brazilian, tend to band with the misfits and geeks and root for the underdog and visionaries. I might talk abou those here too, eventually.
Thanks for stopping by.
