Jetske van Oosten and Tabo Goudswaard in De Correspondent
According to ambassadors of the WDE programme Jetske van Oosten and Tabo Goudswaard, there is a maker hidden in everyone. Hence, they wrote the book Make Power. This book was launched during the WDE conference Ch… Ch… Changes during Dutch Design Week.
The book is a simplified way of how you see design methodology, Goudswaard told during the conference. “It’s a kind of roadmap you can use to get from a to z to change. We believe incredibly in the maker power of people. With this book, we want to awaken the maker that lurks in everyone.”
