THE DESIGN THINKING MODEL
A framework for problem solving.
As we solve for our client’s issue, we use the Design Thinking process shown below. You’ll see this image in each step as a reminder of where you are throughout the challenge.
Begin with empathize.
We start with empathize so you can see the world through someone else’s eyes – try your best to experience it the way someone else does.
Remember, we are trying to figure out “How might we help people thrive mentally and physically in the midst of COVID-19?”
Ready to begin? The first step is to meet Niko!
Niko is here as a guide for you on this adventure.
He will introduce you to people with a variety of strengths and challenges.
These people are your clients, the ones you want to design for. Find out everything you can about them by listening and keeping an open mind.
Let’s Get Started
MEET YOUR CLIENTS
- What was said in the interview?
- How did they feel?
- What are some challenges they faced?
- What else did you notice about their interests and environment?
If you haven’t downloaded the accompanying Designbook, it’s a good time to do that! In Define, you’ll take notes, so you can start that now! The next step includes picking a client and defining the problem or need you will help solve.
