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.
