What if we embraced something as unwieldy and confusing as “the future” as an additional medium for designers? We are entering a future in which everything around us, from the sidewalks we walk on, to the cities we live in, to the hats on our heads, can be mediums for communication and engagement. Because of this reality, the processes for uncovering design problems and creative solutions are completely changing.
