Posted on February 21, 2020Week 7 This week we learned about a diverse set of topics revolving around ideation. In class we made prototypes. At first I felt like I wasn’t sure where to start when it came to building a model of my product. However, Harvard Business Review and the Design Thinking Bootleg helped me understand that prototyping is more about understanding the client experience in one specific aspect of your product. The aspect that I focused on was my brush. When you think about the journey of the customer and what delights them, as mentioned in the Shape of Design, it becomes a simple and fast prototype to build models and let people try it out. The Interaction of Design Foundation was very clear about getting yourself out of the “analysis paralysis” mindset, and begin building instead of thinking. This is a way to move into the flow mind-state and forget about your obsessions with perfection.
