The emerging trend of multidisciplinary collaborations provides opportunities to innovate through unconventional means
Design and collaboration have always been intuitive, natural bedfellows. The very nature of design implies a multidisciplinary perspective where different points of view intersect and collaborate with each other. As the iconic 20th century American designer Richard Buckminster Fuller said, “A designer is an emerging synthesis of artist, inventor, mechanic, objective economist and evolutionary strategist." In other words, think of Steve Jobs, the archetypal designer in Fuller’s quote. Jobs reshaped the global computer, gaming, entertainment and animation industries with breakthrough, design-led products which were founded on his ability to intersect art, technology, engineering, economics and business strategy.
