My Design Process
Discover — Generative Research Phase
Understand the initial situation or challenge. I’ll define what additional knowledge I need. Figure out how to obtain it. Then go all out, in generative research mode.
Define — Synthesis Phase
Understand and make sense of my research to define whether I am solving the right problem and phrase my vision accordingly while also incorporating systems thinking.
Develop — Ideation Phase
Build, test, fail, learn and to do it again. I’ll get into the solution mode by evaluating ways and means to solve the core issues I have gathered from my research synthesis. While doing this, I’ll also take into consideration the entire ecosystem of the product and each atomic unit so clearly that I can set about creating something that’s more than a sum of its parts.
Deliver — Implementation Phase
Design, craft, develop or do whatever it takes to turn my ideas and potential solutions into something tangible.
