Would you suggest this experience to other professionals? 
I would highly recommend this experience to designers looking to take their career to the next level. Not only do you get exposure to a great array of critical thinking skills and tools that are in really high demand in the current global market, but you also get to get to put them in practice and test them out, quickly prototype, iterate and co-create on real projects with real clients.
