As designers part of what we do is to find points of inspiration within a brief. Sometimes this takes a fair bit of digging;  the challenge is is in there but it’s not what the brief initially proposes or maybe the brief is poorly written, other times it’s simply  something that doesn’t naturally light you up.

So when you read a brief that immediately sparks your fascination it’s exciting and clarifies the type of work you are passionate about. This is the case with the new challenges, snippets below, from MITs Solve programme. To have the time to research and work through all of these would be incredible; I’m evaluating which one to explore, I encourage you to read through and participate.
