As a design thinker, I make things that matter.
It doesn't matter..
...how well you've engineered a product if no one wants to use it.
...how great a product idea is if no one knows how to use it.
...what a product can do if no one is paying attention.
Using a user-centered problem solving approach, we can gain empathy and truly understand the users and their tensions. We cannot only ensure that we are solving the right problems, but that they are being solved in the right way. Because we understand the users, we know how to talk to them, we know how to make the story of a product fit within the story of their lives. As design thinkers, we can create value, disrupt, affect change, and add delight to the lives of the users.
My Design Thinking Process
Find the right problem
Solve it in the right way
Tell the right story
