Students in Carie Coleman's design-thinking class use the design thinking process to learn and create.
One exercise challenges them to make wallets for one another. The process includes interviewing another student to find out what the other want. The student then captures findings, sketches ideas, shares their thoughts, and then builds the wallets.
Said one: "It's more about the process than the result."
Design Thinking in five steps
- Research what your user wants
- Dig deep to ensure you understand your user's needs and pain points
- Draft or sketch a possible solution
- Show your drafts and capture feedback
- Build the solution
