Our approach is grounded in human centered design truths.
Human Centered Design key elements:
- People Centered
Seek to understand people in context. Develop empathy for their needs.
- Cross Functional Teams
Team engage in divergent and convergent align on the right problem to solve.
- Iterative Cycles Throughout:
Continuous feedback loops of Ideate, prototype, test, refine mitigates risk confirms next steps.
HCD is embedded into our 3 phases:
Multi-disciplinary team immersions to understand people’s needs + align on the right problem to solve.
Activities designed to stimulate team synergy, iterative activities to ideation cycles arrive at new + different solutions.
Chosen design direction is detailed with engineering for transfer to manufacturing.
CREATIVITY THRIVES WITHIN STRUCTURE.
Contextural understanding of your strategy, customers and users. This includes ethnographic research, immersive brainstorms and creative problem solving.
