Exploring the Creative Process 

  Now - May 28
  DX  |  234 Bay St

Although design follows a creative process, the tools and methods often differ between industries and studios.

Exploring the Creative Process examines the creative process from research, ideation, concept development through to realization using the work of industrial design graduates who have been judged top of their class by the ACIDO Rocket Awards. 

Viewers will have the opportunity to see how design thinking can be applied across industries by exploring the process through projects in Consumer Products, Health & Wellness, Sport & Play, Commercial Equipment, and Social Awareness & Sustainability.




Our Mastercraft series offers a variety workshops and courses with experts from all disciplines to show you the fundamentals of design.

From jewellery-making, fabric-dying, lingerie-sewing, wood-bending, and circuit-creating, these workshops are for participants of all backgrounds and skill levels looking to get hands-on experience from Toronto's best design do-ers and makers.
