Understanding the needs and wants of users is crucial for creating better products.

- What is it and how does it work?

A thread 🧵

What is Design thinking?

- Design thinking is a process or framework for user-centric design & better design.
- Design Thinking is an ideology supported by an accompanying Process ( NN group)

- It allows designers to think outside of the box.
Rather than building a Fancy product & launch then fail; design thinking allows us to understand users' needs and their pain points and design an effective solution, then test it.

I'm staying in a 5 star resort. It's early evening and I'm sat at an outdoor bar with my girlfriend having a couple of drinks.

It's generally pleasant, but the scene could be better.

And once you see it, you can't unsee it

I can't not notice these kind of details.

It's a hexagonal shaped 'tropical cocktail' bar hut with a central drinks display island.

Over this display, highlighting the bottles of spirits, are some pendant lights. But it's not as good as it could be.

Something's a bit off.
For hospitality, particularly at night, it's absolutely crucial to get this stuff right. Elementary design.

Here's a quick breakdown of the visual experience.

Top 3 things I'd improve asap.

How to avoid a newbie lighting mistake.

#interiordesign #designthinking #designinspiration

Most lighting sucks. There are many ways to screw it up, but, I’m going to give you a very simple design principle so you can avoid a common mistake.

Bad lighting is an active participant in the detriment of the visual experience, working against the desired architecture/ID/landscape ambience. It’s the jarring soundtrack which doesn’t suit the occasion. A negative sensory imposition.

Today, we focus on the Horizon Line.
Whether it’s due to cost, convenience or lack of experience, everyone sticks lighting at high level, usually in ceilings - light blasts down indiscriminately from overhead. This simulates a midday sun.

Which is fine, if...

Hilo sobre actualidad política de mi #Linares:
1 la posibilidad de moción de censura está agitando cosas y permite conocer mejor el brillo de los políticos.
2 no estoy de acuerdo en insultos, desprecios y desaires. Gestionar emociones ante una situación tensa revela capacidades
3 Estoy hablando con líderes y pensadores políticos de todos los bandos (quien quiere, claro).
Todos tienen porción argumental de la situación.
Además, detecto que las relaciones entre las personas políticas de nuestra ciudad están muy deterioradas.
Y también huelo algo peor:
4 Falta aplicar capacidad de negociación sabiendo excluir el interés o motivación personal.
Es decir: todos dicen "yo trabajo por Linares", y a todos se les detecta una marcada necesidad de reconocimiento social e intereses futuros.

Dive-in for a peek at my #process and #designthinking on how I made my latest science infographic: "Comparing How COVID-19 Vaccines and Antiviral Pills Work" ⬇️🧵#COVID #Pfizer #Merck #DIY #infographic #vaccines #WIP #development #Covid_19 #paxlovid A poster showing "How I Made This", and a reproduc
The original inspiration for this piece was the newly marketed antiviral pills by Pfizer and Merck for the treatment of COVID-19. I thought with hearing so much about vaccines this year, and with pills entering the arena, people might be curious about what each does in the body.
When I started researching, I quickly learned that there were many types of vaccines. Here's one chart I found that explains this (left; by Nikita Ramesh, made with @BioRender). My first idea (right) was to convey ALL these types of vaccines against antivirals. A chart showing 7 major types of vaccines technologies and hEarly sketch of research and my arrangement for the infograp

1/ Steve Jobs said #innovation is "saying no to 1000 things" before saying yes

For more than a decade, Apple has used Pablo Picasso's Bull to drive home the lesson

#CES2022 #CES #design #designthinking #tech #innovation @EvanKirstel @jblefevre60 #art
Thx @TrungTPhan for this!
2/ In Dec 1945, Picasso created "The Bull", a series of prints

With each successive one, a bull is simplified & abstracted. Picasso's goal was to find "spirit" of it

Apple employees are taught this philosophy

#CES2022 #CES #design #designthinking #tech #innovation @EvanKirstel
3/ Below is the 1st, 4th & last print

Picasso's bull progresses from:
a realistic drawing
to a deconstructed image (abstract)
to a lines outlining the bull's shape

Anybody who says “the #data don’t lie” either is ignorant or manipulative or both. The data are merely a tool that must be used responsibly & ethically to try to approximate “the truth” …some of which is unmeasurable (yet?). There are MANY #datascience methods & varying results
Everybody gets super excited about this new #AI #ML #machinelearning technique or that

You cannot build a RELIABLE house with low #quality bricks

First, look at the building blocks… meaning, how the #data fields are even defined & how the data are obtained

Who defined them?
I can’t tell you how glad I am that I have done coursework at both @MITSloan AND @StanfordGSB - Former immerses you in a ton of hands on analysis & options for analytic techniques useful in a #datascience job. Latter steps back to frame questions, assess missing data, biases.

Do you work in or around design? Read my @fastcompany article on the toxic overuse and abuse of HMW, a popular #designthinking technique that I think needs to be retired…
Below are some links to the people and articles I mentioned in the article.

I’m grateful that @fastcompany continues to be a space for critical reflections such as my long form piece. Suzanne Lebarre is a great editor!
It was a multi-year process for me to turn my years of fieldnotes on HMW into this article. The HMW is used so ubiquitously as part of workshops globally that many unnamed senior leaders in our space warned me of career suicide if I ever spoke publicly about it

💡 #designthinking

It's important to surround yourself with good design. Ask yourself the hard questions: What works? What could be improved?

I came across this design on @dribbble:… Let's talk about it.

🧵👇🏻 1/16
Dashboards are hard:
- Summarizing *a lot* of info in one place
- Info needs to be easily digestible
- Different people prioritize info differently depending on their use case

This dashboard does a *great* job of taking all those things into consideration

🧵 2/16
The Typography looks great. There's a good mix of thicks and thins that create contrast and help communicate visual hierarchy.

Found this on @dribbble…

Things I like:
- Subtle texture in the background
- Mix of line illustrations w/ photography. I do this a lot in my work to give the design a more "organic" feel and help lead the eye

Where this design ultimately fails (and it's BIG): It took me **way too long** to realize this site is promoting paying through your watch. It didn't occur to me until I saw the caption: "The fastest way to pay without-touch."

🧵 2/5
My train of thought: "If it's related to touch, shouldn't you see a fingerprint or the palm? ... oh, there are "waves" coming out of the watch ... I get it now."

1/ Recently finished @RogerLMartin's The Design of Business. Here are some of my top takeaways 🧵 #startups #innovation #DesignThinking #StrategicDesign Image
2/ Innovation is about seeing the world not as it is, but as it could be. It's about exploring really "wicked problems" whose solutions can't be found in past experience or proven by data.
3/ "Design thinking" focuses on accelerating the pace at which knowledge advances from mystery (an unexplainable problem) to
heuristic (a rule of thumb that guides us toward a solution) to algorithm (a replicable success formula).

Design Thinking 💡💬

#DesignThinking? Nah!!
We call it ‘Outside the Box’ Thinking 😉 But Why?

A Thread 🧵
It is usually mentioned as ‘outside the box’ thinking, as designers try to develop new ways of thinking that don’t abide by the dominant or additional common problem-solving ways.
Instead of getting stuck into the square process of thinking, studying & working, try out your new venture by implementing #Designthinking today itself.

#DesignResearch - 𝑷𝒂𝒓𝒕 1

Welcome! ✨
I present: A quite interesting thread! 👀

So, we had this course called [ Metodologi Riset Desain ] and tbh it's such a unique concept for us who still have the mindset that the most important thing of design is 'only' the visual -- Image
--as we often forget the research behind a design.

✨"A research driven design has proven to significantly contributed to sharpen designers' assessment to identify design problems articulate users' need, as well as finding the best media and technology for design development."✨
[ Desainer + klien ➡️ untuk Audiens ]
👉 Dibutuhkan RISET!

Desain sebagai sebuah "solusi" tentu butuh riset mendalam guna mengidentifikasi & memecahkan permasalahan.

Metode menyesuaikan kebutuhan, jadi setelah desainer menemukan SATU masalah, dapat dihadirkan BANYAK solusi.

Hi all, people have asked about purchasing. I’m not in the business of selling these. Maker at heart and encourage others to make too. As many have pointed out, there’s already a similar product on the market by Ipevo.…

(1) La vuelta al colegio en otoño va a suponer un reto de enrome magnitud. El nivel de incertidumbre respecto al #covid19 es muy elevado. La asimetría de los rebotes, también. La dependencia de los mismos con los usos y costumbres sociales parece evidente
(2) Parece claro también que en España, tanto a nivel de Gobierno Central como de CCAA, existe un elevado nivel de desconcierto y descoordinación respecto a lo que va a suceder.
(3) El problema es un claro problema de innovación: una organización (el Sistema Educativo en su conjunto) se enfrenta a un repentino cambio en las variables de entorno. De hecho, no es “repentino”: hemos tenido seis meses para planificar escenarios y proponer soluciones

THREAD: This wk, @SickKidsNews published a proposed approach to return to school. It generated a spectrum of opinions on social media & TV/radio.…

I'll discuss how this is a wicked problem and a #design approach should be used, at least in part.
My disclosure: I am certainly no ID physician or expert on COVID disease transmission but as I’ve written about previously I am interested in decision making under stress, #design and behavior nudges during uncertainty
And I have 2 kids who go to school. So this matters to me
I'll discuss how kids returning back to school is essentially a wicked problem. Not a term I made up, but rather “a problem that cannot be fixed, where there is no single solution”.…
