A community built by design thinkers, for design thinkers.

What is the Design Thinking Zeal?

The Design Thinking Zeal is an online gathering for design thinkers around the world who are interested in exchanging skills and sharing stories about how we’re using design thinking. 

But what's in a name?




Zeal is the word for group of zebras and they are generally social animals that live in small harems to large herds. We’re also building a community of creative spirits that recognizes we are stronger together.



The black and white stripes are zebra’s equivalent of a fingerprint. We’re all unique and value each other’s differences. Each of us in the community are using design thinking in different way so there is so much to share and learn.



Another word for a group of Zebra’s is a 'dazzle’ and when design thinkers come together we dazzle!



Zeal also means "great energy or enthusiasm in pursuit of a cause or an objective” which seems fitting since we’re all pretty excited about the topic! (Yay for nerdy puns!)

Watch Previous Zeals

The best Zeal experience is live in real-time because we design it to be interactive but we also record the session so that anyone who was unable to join in real-time doesn't miss out.  This part of our commitment to democratizing access to skills, information and inspiration.


Join the dazzle.

Our community currently gathers every other Friday from 10-11:10am EST.


Since the Zeal is community (i.e. not a newsletter), once you sign up you will receive an invitation to a Meet & Greet so we can personally welcome you. We're so excited to meet you and learn how you dazzle! 

If you are curious to know more, complete the form below and stay tuned for updates.
