Post-its are my love but it’s more important to organise them to boost creativity. I have developed my ideation and problem framing tools, built on existing design methods and customised to different projects. As a visual thinker, I frequently use multidimensional maps and diagrams to lead brainstorming, define the scope of the problems and visualise roadmaps.
Design is both a result and an iteration tool. Asking What if questions can be easy, but it’s designers’ intuition to prototype the hypothesis and observe how people react. I enjoy using artefacts or interfaces to conduct experiments, start conversations and uncover people’s attitude. Those artefacts or interfaces are often out of fast prototyping. The interactions facilitated might be unexpected, while they are able to immerse people in a speculated future scenario.
Thinking Through Making
From mood boarding with candies to 5-minute UI prototyping on paper, a good making session not only gives form to an idea but also inspires new features in a short period of time. Individual making is enjoyable, co-creating is even better!
