Description: Hong Kong Design Centre (HKDC) is an NGO and has set up the Institute of Design Thinking (IDK) as a learning platform offering specialised training on the topics of design innovation and creative leadership. We designed a game kit to help people learn the process of DesignThinking and how it serves as a great way to solve problems with much fun and creativity.

Divergence is a fast-paced storytelling game for 3 to 6 people, designed to guide the players to understand this process, and allowing them to dive deep into behaviours and needs of a character to come up with innovative and user-centric solutions.

We ensure the bilingual gamekit is not only fun to play, but also visually stimulating. It is packaged in a soft string bag with eye-catching herringbone patterns, while the box is contrastingly in plain grey. Once the box is opened, the players would quickly find the colourful deck of cards inside printed with beautiful abstract illustrations, helping to ignite and unleash their creativity during play. The toolkit also comes with a set of collectibles, including embroidered badges and stickers, to reverberate the connections between the players and Design Thinking even long after the game has finished.
