This week’s readings are making me feel fresh. It is becuase I learn many new ideas from this week’s readings. For example, the article “Can 10 minutes of meditation make you more creative?.” I have not to think about meditation can improve our creativity. This article teaches me that we can take a short meditation before bed, this can help us to enhance creativity and innovation. Furthermore, mindfulness practice improves attention and makes it easier to register the novelty and usefulness of ideas. I also think the article “Better Brainstorm,” also makes me learn many new things. Most of us may hard to linger in a questioning mode, becuase we are conditioned from an early age to just keep the answer coming. Thus, I am so surprised in asking questions is so important for creativity. I should come up with more questions about my topic to have more deep solutions.
For this week’s readings, I found out most brands’ new products or services are connecting with work collaboration. For the article “Making Sure a Bank Stays Great as it Grows,” they provide opportunities for their staff to explore their ideas. This is the best way to plan, brainstorm, discuss and decide the ideas. Furthermore, Airbnb used “Snow White” this Disney movie to explore their new, design process. They would make sure “like are these hosts men or women? Are they young, are they old? Where do they live? The city or the countryside? Why are they hosting? ” I think this is an effective way to explore our creativity. When I meet barrels in design, I think this is a better way to solve my problem. There are many ways for us to choose, but I think there must have the best way for us to be successful.
This week’s readings and observations made me learn a lot. Story shared by my classmate about the dressing room, and I also capture some interesting and useful ideas for myself. I plan to design the dressing room to be more technological. For example, my interviewers complained that they are lazy to fold the clothes. Thus, I plan to design a machine that can help people to fold their clothes. My interviewers also complained that their dressing room is too small, they did not have enough space to put their clothes. Thus, I want to design the wardrobe to be build-in, and the customers can choose the size and the arrange of space for the wardrobe by themselves. I also get some new ideas from these weeks’ readings. I would like to remember them to remind myself.
