CO-DESIGN | 2012
As part of my MA I ran a workshop centered on design process. I got my MA class to help me out and together, we designed a situation, product or service. The first stage was to choose 3 words from the categories in a board, blindfolded, then in teams we would sketch/brainstorm the idea according to our keywords and later on present it to everyone. After that, we made prototypes: whether cardboard prototypes or models. Finally, we role-played the concept, thinking as the user, giving another dimension to the design process. For fun, the last stage was to go from co-design to co-action, meaning that we got to interact together exploring different digital tools using our whole body, in order to further explore our concepts in a more physically interactive way.
This workshop helped strengthen my design methodology and helped other designers have insights about their own method while having a bunch of fun.
