Innovation and the Arts
A Closer Look at the Connection Between Design Thinking and the Creative Process w/ Christina Bullard YSD ‘07

An alum of the Yale School of Drama, Christina Bullard is a New York based costume designer whose design work spans opera, theatre, dance, and independent film. She is also the Assistant Professor of Costume Design for Uconn (University of Connecticut). In addition to her theatre career, Christina previously worked on Isaac Mizrahi’s couture fashion line as well as designed for his commercial QVC clothing brands. Subsequently, an interest in analyzing the creative thinking process led her to explore the practice of Design Thinking and its relationship to the creative thinking processes of the arts. As part of this endeavor, she studied Design Thinking with the NYC based company The Design Gym and subsequently taught their classes for the year prior to Uconn. Today, in addition to her costume design work, Christina develops and presents workshops that harness the transfer value of the arts as a platform for teaching skills in human-centered design thinking with an emphasis on empathy, observation, personal perspective, creative thinking, innovation, and collaboration.
