A short history:

Design Infidelity began as a studio written by Bonnie Abbott for RMIT University in 2015. Its aim was to expose students to the demands of cross-functional or collaborative design teams that work across a number of processes. It studied the ways that non-designers work and recognise value as an exercise in developing adaptive personal processes that can cope with dynamic environments. 

After a successful semester, the material was adopted as a Double Days project and refined into a modular workshop that could offer the same level of challenge to broader design disciplines. With each workshop that is held, the methodology grows and evolves: building an ever-greater process library, more robust toolkits, all driven by the knowledge created between the facilitator and the participants.
