Design Process

Design Thinking is a framework for developing practical and creative resolutions. The process is built on five basic steps – empathize, define, ideate, prototype and test. Students are taught to work through this process to create products or services that solve real-world problems.

The Design Process:
  • Empathize
    Feel or understand what another person is feeling or thinking.
  • Define
    Create clarity about the problem or need we are designing for.
  • Ideate
    Think of many possible solutions based on user's exact needs.
  • Prototype
    Test ideas quickly.
  • Test
    Bring prototypes to users to better understand the user.
