Discovery conjures up many ideas of the unknown, scenes of travelling in to time and space and feelings of the new and unfound. Yet really discovery can be an incredibly intimate and selfish expedition.
We use discovery to connect with people, to answer briefs, to create an idea or to design an experience. Discovery unveils something tangible even emotional, it’s a skill we use to unveil truths that are personal to us.
In our current climate, the discovery of truth and who’s truth it is has never been more important. So, we want to explore how our community use their skills to do this, how do we recognise the truth and how do we separate the real from the fake?
Or how do we use the skill of discovery in our work, how does it define who we are and ultimately define our output.
